Hi Hunters!

We're super excited to be launching Astro soon on IndieGoGo!

Astro is the world's first head up display to mirror your phone's screen. You will be able to fully use any of your favorite apps while safely keeping your eyes on the road. Astro also uses gesture controls to do tasks such as answer phone calls and change songs without touching your phone.

"The National Safety Council reports that cell phone use while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes each year." It's no wonder California implemented the law stating you can no longer hold your phone while driving. Astro will help remove the temptation of reaching for your cellphone to keep drivers safe and out of trouble.

Head over to http://www.headupdisplay.co/ to sign up for updates leading up to the campaign launch. A limited amount of backers will be able to save OVER 50% off on IndieGoGo, so make sure you're one of the first people there!

EDIT: I just read the makers' comment above and understand... Show More

Very cool and timely for Californians. It's now illegal to hold your phone while driving. Also check out this similar car dash: Navdy

I literally mounted my phone over my LCD display to solve this problem. Bwahah

How is this in any way less distracting than looking at the phone screen? Also, there are several heads up displays on the market for mobile phones, so this is hardly new.
