Technology isn’t just about smartphones, tablets, TVs, gaming console and whatnot, so if you view your car as your biggest gadget, then you’re probably looking for ways to make it smarter. We’ve already talked about Carvi, a smart driving assistant and about Ohm, a smart car battery; and today we’re going to talk about something that joins the ranks of these cool car gadgets.
From a first look, Exploride is without doubt one of the coolest devices to have in your car. Described as a futuristic heads-up display for your car, Exploride mixes ‘cutting edge display and gesture-recognition technology to provide hands-free access to maps, calls, texts, notifications, music and the onboard diagnostics of your car.’
Exploride lets you use gesture controls instead of having to reach over to press the screen, which is obviously much safer. Furthermore, the transparent display makes sure that you keep your eyes on the road and, of course, there’s also hands-free calling built-in. You can even stream music via Spotify and Pandora, or directly from your phone.
What’s really cool is that you also get access to your car vitals, such as speed, fuel, tyre pressure, engine health, temperature and other on-board diagnostic data. There’s also a built-in camera which comes with a 3MP sensor for recording whatever happens in front of you. The GPS is voice controlled and directly powered by Google Maps, so you won’t have to pair it with your device.
Explore is connected to the cloud, allowing you to securely access your data from anywhere you are with the companion app. Another cool feature is the ability to work as a hotspot, allowing you to share your connection with all the other passengers. The product itself comes with the following specs:
- 6-inch transparent display
- quad-core processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 12V multi-USB adaptor
- IR camera, dash camera
- 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0
- OBD II scanner adaptor
- high output speakers
Now seems to be the right moment to but this product, as you can get one Explore for a price of $269, which is 45% off ($230 off). You will received a heads-up Display, one OBD II adapter, a charging set and the app, as well as 5 GB of cloud storage for 1 year. Go ahead and have a look at the video from below to see the device in action.
