Head-up display: premium feature of luxury cars NOW available for everyone at affordable price
Now live on Kickstarter is HUDWAY Glass, a simple accessory turning a regular smartphone into a head-up display.
By: HUDWAY Glass
HUDWAY Glass makes a luxury car technology affordable to literally everyone at only $49 apiece, while alternative aftermarket solutions (like Navdy and Exploride) range from $300 to $500. Unlike its potential competitors, HUDWAY Glass contains no electronic components and requires no power to work — it directly mirrors the information from the smartphone screen. The versatile accessory is designed to fit any car dashboard, any smartphone, and any driver’s height and position.
HUDWAY Glass Kickstarter campaign was launched on October 7th. The project got 100% funded in 5 days reaching its goal of $100K. Current pledged total is beyond $335K and the campaign still has 10 more days to go.
"We did it because we’re tired of waiting for others. Because we believe that automotive HUDs are safer than an instrument-panel display or a smartphone. And because other solutions are either very expensive, or stuck in the midst of a long and complicated development process. This is the accessory we want, and we think you’ll like it. It's simple and affordable. Discover a new way of using your phone while driving and not being distracted."
HUDWAY LLC CEO and Co-founder Ivan Klabukov
The team plans to start shipping at the beginning of spring 2016.
HUDWAY LLC. started in 2013 with the release of HUDWAY app (available for iOS and Android), which has gained over 1M users worldwide. HUDWAY mobile app is specifically designed for navigation in low visibility — it assists like a co-pilot, reduces distraction, and turns a smartphone into a HUD.
