When it comes to driving, the forces that aim to keep us safe seem to be in constant battle with the pull of convenience. We’re supposed to keep our eyes glued to the road while trying to navigate through Google Maps without missing a single turn. It’s an inherently dangerous combination.
With their new VIZR tool, FIXD automotive hopes to fix that. After selecting the feature you want, you connect the device to your phone and place it on your dashboard, where it creates a transparent display. This way, FIXD says, you can seamlessly navigate without ever glancing at your phone and putting your life in jeopardy.
Though VIZR is a great idea, the reviews indicate it might not be all it’s cracked up to be. You might want to wait until all the bugs are sorted out. For now, just keep your eyes on the road the old-fashioned way.
