New technology called HeadsUp! is advertising itself as a safe alternative to using a handheld device such as a cell phone while driving. The technology creates a visual display that projects some smartphone features onto a car's windshield. The manufacturer claims that it allows users to "engage" with their cell phones without looking down or averting their attention.
The technology is not available yet and the manufacturer is still seeking investors. Some safety experts question the legality of the product in states such as Georgia that prohibit texting and driving.
