Crowdsourcing Mornings: Hudway Glass


Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

They’re HUDWAY.  They made a universal vehicle accessory that turns your smartphone into a Head-Up Display (HUD) bringing comfort and safety to drivers all over the world.  They did it because they’re tired of waiting for others. Because they 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 they want, and they think you’ll like it. It’s simple and affordable. Discover a new way of using your phone while driving and not being distracted. Now they need your support to make HUDWAY Glass a reality.

They have been tirelessly working on improving safety and comfort of drivers while behind the wheel for over three years. They started with a phone app for iOS and Android, which has transformed their vision on how cell phones can be used in a car. By now, over one million drivers have tried their app, and they’ve been frequently getting emails of appreciation from their customers.  They even have an amazing story about how their app saved a life of one person.  There are 600 million people in the world who get behind the wheel of a car every single day. According to the researches, approximately 75% of them get distracted while driving — it could be just drinking coffee, talking to a child in the back seat, reaching for the glove compartment, changing a radio station, and so on… But the worst and most frequent distraction is our phone.  Support them today!
