The Hudway Glass is an affordable heads-up display for vehicles that allows drivers to attain a healthy balance between keeping their eyes on the road and consulting their display.
Heads-up displays offer the advantage of allowing drivers to look at the speedometer or check their phones without averting their eyes from the windshield. But at the same time, displaying too much data on a heads-up display can reduce driver safety. This is where the Hudway Glass comes in, with its features and simplicity allowing it to maintain a healthy balance.
The device is a simply smartphone cradle with a transparent plastic lens that reflects and optically enhances data displayed by your phone. Users can select apps that provide data like speed, location and navigation and have them projected on their heads-up displays.
Heads-up displays are exciting but can be a distraction if over-used, and this is where the Hudway Glass' fine balance comes in, while the fact that it is quite affordable -- available for a $49 pledge on Kickstarter -- makes it even more appealing.
