Shut Up and Take My Money: Nadvy Heads-Up Display

By on August 7, 2014

shut_up_and_take_my_moneyDesigned to help you keep your eyes on the road and away from your smartphone, the Nadvy is a small gadget that projects a heads-up display on your windshield while you are driving.

By default, the image will show off your current speed, but can also perform functions like real-time driving directions, notifications for calls or texts, music playback information and sending tweets.

The Nadvy connects to your iOS or Android smartphone over low-power Bluetooth to accomplish these tasks and includes a camera to detect hand gestures. For instance, you can use a hand gesture to answer or hang up a call. There’s also a microphone included for voice commands and dictation of text messages. All phone notifications will be sent to the display, ideal for all types of mobile applications.

At the moment, the Nadvy isn’t available at retail. Expected to ship during early 2015, consumers can preorder the device for 40 percent off ($299) the eventual retail price of $499. Be aware that this is a crowdfunded project similar to service like Kickstarter. It’s possible that the delivery date could be delayed due to unforeseen manufacturing issues, just like many Kickstarter projects.
