Navdy  Or How To Safely Interact With Your Smartphone While Driving & Still Keeping Your Eyes On The Road
Smartphones and cars don’t really go hand in hand! There are too many temptations to take your eyes from the road and check your phone for incoming text massages, navigation directions, emails, social media notifications and messages, dial calls and so on … And taking your eyes from the road causes accidents!

Navdy is a nifty car gadget that promises to solve this issue and allow you to interact with your smartphone while keeping your eyes on the road. How do they do it? You simply put Navdy on your car’s dashboard, it connects via Bluetooth to your iPhone or Android smartphone and, via a HUD (heads-up display), it projects information from your phone and displays it … on the road in front of your vehicle! Well, it doesn’t really project the info on the road, but on the device’s 5.1in transparent screen, which makes it look like it’s projected on the road in front of you.

ALSO CHECK the Garmin Windshield HUD (Head-Up Display) and the Skully P1 HUD Motorcycle Helmet we wrote about earlier.

Other than displaying navigation directions, Navdy can be controlled via air-gestures and voice commands to allow you to send messages and emails, answer and dial calls, control music playback and, if connected to the car’s computer via the OBDII interface, can allow you to monitor car performance and diagnostics by displaying the info on its HUD.

Navdy is presently on a private crowdfunding campaign and you can pre-order one for $299. Delivery is scheduled for early 2015.

SlimClip, The Minimalist iPhone Case With Enhanced Clip-On Capabilities
Smartphones are more and more in our lives and every day we depend more and more of them. Just think about it! Just a few short years back you needed a backpack full of gadgets to accomplish what you do today with a simple smartphone. GPS navigation, MP3 player, books, digital camera and the list goes on and on …

But there’s a small problem with this! As smartphones become capable of helping us with more and more tasks, they also grow in size! They need more powerful batteries, bigger screens, bigger storage space, more physical space inside them to carry more chips and technologies … And this makes them less and less portable …

For many, carrying their phone around while working, exercising or traveling has become a real hassle. For them, and not only, the Wonderful Things Factory brought the SlimClip to the market. The SlimClip is a minimalist iPhone case which also doubles as a belt clip allowing users to carry their phones clipped to their belt, pocket or paints waist.

The SlimClip is made of strong protective ABS plastic, has a minimalist design (it only ads 2.5mm of thickness to your iPhone), is compatible with iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S, comes in a range of vibrant colors to match your favorite outfit, gives natural access to all native iPhone buttons and ports and, due to it’s ingenious design, can be securely clipped to clothing, bags, backpacks, laptop cases and even in your car.
I used the SlimClip for the past couple of days and it’s a great product. A bit of work to slide the iPhone in the case, but that’s a small price to pay for a solid grip and piece of mind that your favorite smartphone is well secured and safe while you roam around!
Check out the demo on the manufacturer’s site …
