The Navdy HUD for your car
The technology has been in fighter jets since the 1950s, and auto makers have been toying with it for nearly three decades. San Francisco-based startup Navdy has created a head-up display that sits on your cars dashboard and displays information from your smartphone on a 5.1-inch wide glass display (usually, the display is built into the dashboard, and projects images onto the windshield). For $499, it gives any recent jalopy (it plugs into the OBD II port found next to the steering column on any car made after 1996) an intelligent display, along with gesture and voice commands.
Full of features and affordable, I think Navdy might be on to something here. I love the concept behind this and I’m looking forward to seeing some real use of the device once it’s released and in the hands of people. Stay tuned.
