You can now change your ordinary car into a smart car, thanks to Exploride. Now what is this Exploride all about? It is a futuristic HUD which you can put in your car and you will be able to access maps, call, music, texts and more, all within one place. However, you don’t have to worry about getting distracted with this head up display as it is transparent and you can use it with hands-free voice and gesture controls. The project is currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.

Use of Latest Technology
The HUD uses advanced technology where a transparent display is combined with the latest in-car tech, GPS systems and music. It provides exceptional functionality in a device which is small and portable. The IR sensors and microphones allow the seamless use of voice and gesture controls by Exploride. Here are a few features of the futuristic HUD:
- Smart GPS & Maps
The HUD has smart GPS which connects with updated Google maps. This will guide you with the best and more accurate route every time. You can download maps and use them offline even without your smartphone. With voice activated navigation facility in Exploride, you will be reminded to take the right direction.
- Gesture Controls with Road Safety
You can keep your eyes on the road and can maintain road safety while driving. To take or decline phone calls, or lower or raise volume, you can just use simple hand gestures when you use Exploride.
- On-board Diagnostics & Dash-Cam
You will be able to get important information like tire pressure, speed, trip meter, engine stats, fuel and other useful data, right within the HUD. With the Dash-Cam feature, you will be able to get these data.
- Noise Cancellation
There are in-built microphones in Exploride which allows noise cancellation and you can give uninterrupted voice commands and experience high call clarity.
The Exploride app lets you remain connected with other Exploride users and gives you important information whether you are inside or outside the car.
