An unfortunate truth about living in Chicago:
When inclement weather hits, drivers forget how to drive.
The symptoms, you know: Severe loss of direction. Mental roadblocks. Profound fatigue from trying to retrieve your phone from under the seat after hitting a Texas-sized pothole.
Here with the hitch assist: Carloudy, the ultra-portable device that does away with the clunky projector mount and turns any windshield into a head-up display, no matter what car you drive.

Developed by a team of Chicago engineers, Carloudy works simply: fire up the companion app and place the device — a tablet, basically — on your dashboard and you’ll instantly receive feature-rich GPS navigation display (it works directly with Google Maps and Yelp) beamed directly onto your windshield.
Also featured: your speedometer with speed warnings, plus gas mileage with gas level.
It’s all shown to you through a six-inch, HD display that uses same exactly technology you’ll find in your favorite e-reader.
Meaning: you’ll be able to read this thing clearly no matter how bright the sun shines — an ambient light sensor automatically adjusts for brightness.
Carloudy is currently crushing their Kickstarter goal. You’ll want jump in for those early bird specials.
See ya on the road.
