Hud­way glass Head-up dis­play

Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - GEAR -

If you haven’t yet ex­pe­ri­enced driv­ing with head-up tech­nol­ogy, you won’t feel like you’re miss­ing too much. How­ever, imag­ine some­one tak­ing your smart­phone away and telling you that you’ll have to go back to us­ing a Nokia 3210. That’s what it feels like when you go for a test drive with it and then re­turn to your own car. Thanks to Hud­way, now anyone can have it, with­out buy­ing the premium ve­hi­cle.

Ba­si­cally, Hud­way turns your smart­phone into a a head-up dis­play (HUD). It works with any smart­phone with the (free) apps. Head-up tech­nol­ogy as­sists with­out dis­tract­ing. Glass trans­parency al­lows for a clear road view and the dis­play right in the driver’s line of sight.

Hud­way’s por­ta­ble head-up dis­play sits eas­ily on the dash and wire­lessly mir­rors your smart­phone’s screen in front of your eyes. You can still con­trol ba­sic phone func­tions on your smart­phone: quickly man­age calls, switch tracks, or share lo­ca­tion while see­ing di­rec­tions on the HUD (not while driv­ing, ob­vi­ously). The trans­par­ent lens fo­cuses the vir­tual im­age about three me­tres in front of you, and it’s per­fectly vis­i­ble at night or dur­ing the day. PRICE: R1423 WHERE:­por­ti­ WE LIKE: HUDs are su­per-cool WE DIS­LIKE: A bit dif­fi­cult to see in bright day­light
