Hudly Makes It Easy for Drivers to Keep Their Eyes on the Road

While many of us harbor fears over air travel, flying is actually very safe in comparison with driving. Around 1.3 million people around the world die behind the wheel each year, with another 20–50 million people injured. In other words, the roads should be given the utmost respect. Yet in-car entertainment systems and GPS often distract our attention away from the highway. Hudly is a new wireless heads-up display that helps drivers keep their eyes on the road. All you need is your smartphone.

– 6.2-inch high-resolution display puts GPS directions in your eyeline

– Works like a teleprompter screen, reflecting your phone

– Compatible with iOS and Android devices, and any app

Eyes On the Road

When you’re hurtling along at 60 mph in a metal box, even the slightest distraction can be dangerous. Yet we often don’t sense this danger. Cars are sufficiently comfortable and capable that we get away with disciplining children and taking calls.

Rather than take that chance, you might want to try Hudly. This innovative device utilizes your phone to put directions in your eyeline. This means you never need to look away from potential hazards ahead.

What’s more, you’re not restricted to directions. The display works with any app, meaning you can take handsfree calls and see what’s playing on Spotify.

Safe Drive

It’s pretty easy to get started with Hudly. The device consists of a 6.2-inch high-resolution display and a mount for your phone. You can stick the whole thing to your dash, near the windshield.

The display works like one of those teleprompter screens. Instead of a script, you see the GPS directions as they appear on your phone. Unlike your phone, however, Hudly doesn’t impede your vision.

Furthermore, the info displayed by Hudly appears to float above the hood of your car. This focus effect means you don’t have to keep refocusing your eyes. With a 30-degree viewing angle, your passengers can also see the route. This is a major improvement on phone-based directions.

The display even works after dark and in bright sunlight. These features are far from unique, but Hudly does everything you could ask for.

More Than GPS

Along with GPS, the Hudly app lets you see a digital speedometer, and answer calls. You can also see other automotive gauges and easily flick through your playlist. Once you park, the display even becomes a tiny cinema screen for all the passengers.

It connects wirelessly to both iOS and Android devices and can be installed in virtually any car. You can use our app, optimized to get the most out of a head-up display, or cast any of your favorite apps directly in your line of sight for seamless navigation.” — Hudly on Kickstarter
