Here’re 5 of our favourite gadgets available for your car right now.
Starting with our staffs favourite, Navdy is truly something that looks like it was taken back to our today from the year 3000 in a time machine. In short, Navdy projects a crystal clear transparent interface in the form of a HUD (Heads up Display). The UI appears to be 2 metres in front of the driver so that it is in the same field of focus as the road ahead. The interface is navigated through a series of either audible commands or motion gestures, for example, you can ask your Navdy to ‘Call mum’ or reply to a text just by dictating what you’d like to say. Navdy is available for pre-order on their website for £205 with postage included, but if you wait until 2015 and buy it at retail price, it’ll cost you around £330. A great deal Navdy are offering is a 10% discount for every customer you refer to them, if you refer 10 friends, your Navdy is free!
