You don’t need to spend your hard-earned cash on an expensive heads-up display for your dashboard. Why? It’s simple: you already have most of the capabilities on your smartphone. And with the Hudway Glass, you’re able to transform your smartphone into a HUD.
It’s an inexpensive phone accessory that sticks to your dash with one of the two included mounts. The gadget provides an augmented reality on the windshield using plastic to provide a heads-up display, and using it is as simple as flipping it up and tapping any of the HUD-supporting apps, such as Hudway’s GPS navigation app, Speedometer, Navmii, Baidu Maps, and more. Your phone won’t fly off of the cradle when you brake, either, as it has a non-slip grip that holds onto the back of your phone for dear life. The device is available on Kickstarter for an early backer price of $49. [Purchase]
