Baby, You Can Drive My Car

Using the GPS on your smartphone can be pretty handy, as well as incredibly dangerous. Taking your eyes off the road for just a few seconds could lead to disaster, but to many of us the risk of missing our exit is a much scarier prospect. That’s what makes the new iOS app Hudway so ingenious — it turns your car’s windshield into a 3-dimensional augmented reality GPS display. How it works: Simply program the route you want to drive, place your phone on your dashboard and follow the instructions as they’re reflected onto the glass in front of you. Recently featured in Moscow during last week’s Open Innovations Forum, the free app, which works best in low-light situations, could make getting there that much easier and safer. — Adam Albright-Hanna
