HeadsUp! is bringing Amazon Alexa outside of your house and into your car
San Francisco startup, HeadsUP! Is bringing Amazon Alexa outside of consumers’ homes and into their cars.
HeadsUP! is an aftermarket head-up display that wirelessly connects to a user’s smartphone in their car. The company is working with Amazon to integrate Alexa Voice Services with its connected ecosystem so users can do things like set their living room temperatures on their drive home from work- without their smartphones.
According to HeadsUP!, users can interact with the unit by talking to it in natural language without having to remember specific commands.
"Wouldn't it be awesome to turn your house to party mode on your way back from work - setting your Sonos to your favorite track, Nest to 70 degrees, and lighting to that cool blue?" Arnab Raychaudhuri, founder of HeadsUP!, said in a statement.
"The human machine interaction is changing from artificially imparted intelligence to a more naturally intuitive process," Arnab also stated.
The company is launching their pre-order campaign here on February 18. HeadsUP! will be available for a reduced price of $299.99 during the pre-order campaign.
