Turn Smartphone Into A Head-up Display

Share
Posted October 15, 2015

HUDWAY Glass  is a universal vehicle accessory that turns your smartphone into a Head-Up Display (HUD). It eliminates many issues associated with projecting an image onto a windshield, including doubling of the image, lack of reflection during daytime and image size.

The main HUDWAY Glass component — a plastic lens, very lightweight and of low fragility, which means that cuts are unlikely even if it gets broken. The glass has an aspheric shape, which allows to get a 20% larger image while at the same time minimize spherical, comatic, and chromatic aberrations, when looking through the curved glass you still see the road as it is, with no distortions.
