Hudly Wireless Head-up Display

As useful as the smartphone is, it is also a tool that kills when used while driving. In fact, in the U.S., the National Safety Council estimated that cell phone usage while behind the wheel is the culprit behind 1.6 million traffic accidents each year. Even if folks can resist the temptation of replying to text while driving, you can’t say no to navigation which has become an essential of driving. Well, that won’t be the case if your car has built-in navigation but trust me, my time with a Renault Scenic with such a feature requires you to look away from the road. The one solution that will address this deadly issue is a technology born out of fighter jets and that’s a head-up display or HUD.

HUD in automobiles isn’t new. One of my previous rides, a 1989 S13 Nissan Silvia, had it, but that being an ancient tech, it was merely for casting the speed. Fast forward to 2018, we have the Hudly Wireless Head-up Display. Add-on HUD for cars isn’t new either, but Hudly’s second-generation HUD is wireless, so it’d look more integrated and more aesthetically pleasing. Anything that does away with is good in our books. The way Hudly Wireless sits on top of your dash, directly in your line of sight, kind of turns your car into a fighter jet.

With Hudly Wireless, you can cast the smartphone app of your choice or navigate with the Hudly app. The latter is, obviously, optimized for use on a HUD like Hudly. Moreover, users can also connect the optional smart modules such as OBD2, so that parameters like gas, mileage et cetera can be cast onto the HUD as well. All the information is relay onto a clear, high-resolution display with a wide angle of view and automatic brightness adjustments, while built-in projector speakers and voice control support make for a true hands-free interaction HUD experience. This is much better than using a smartphone, and it’s believed it could decrease the number of distracted drivers needing to seek a car accident lawyer in the future.

If you are keen, you pick up the Hudly Wireless Head-up Display from the Hudly website for a special introductory price of $299 a pop.
