Friday Photo: Our Attention Needs Our Attention

This is Navdy. It’s a very cool HUD (Heads Up Display) for our cars. Navdy makes texting and using our phone while we’re driving easier than ever. Imagine, now we can text or video conference with our girlfriend instead of paying attention to that boring road we’re on.

Will Navdy be the death of any pedestrians and bicycle riders? In the real world there will be other cars on this road. And people riding bicycles. And people walking. And cars cutting us off. Will we see that? Or will we be focused on the latest sext from our girlfriend?
