NAVDY
All new cars are required to have a backup camera and screen, many of which double as a digital console. For the many drivers who aren’t selling their older model anytime soon, it’s now possible to retrofit a futuristic heads-up display on the dashboard. Navdy is a new portable HUD that fits into any car with an OBD-11 port. Paired with a smartphone, the device provides turn-by-turn navigation, fuel information and Bluetooth calling, all displayed on a clear screen that resembles a hologram on your windshield. Navdy can be controlled with voice commands and motion detection as well as a dial accessory that clips onto the steering wheel. $499.

BOSE QUIETCOMFORT 35
Bose gets a lot of flak for selling overpriced products, but the company’s one saving grace is its exceptional noise-canceling technology. While you can find better sound quality with other headphones in the same price range, Bose’s QuietComfort line is still the best when it comes to finding peace. The 35 is the wireless version of the popular QuietComfort 25, updating the technology with a rechargeable battery, an integrated remote and the Bose Connect app. There’s also a headphone jack if your batteries run out or if you want to enjoy in-flight entertainment without the sound of jet engines. $349.95.

WITHINGS HAIR COACH
You’re probably familiar with the smart home company Withings. Its latest product is the Hair Coach, designed in collaboration with L’Oreal and Kérastase. We’re still waiting for the price, reportedly less than $200, getting you a typical brush loaded with a microphone to identify your hair type, conductivity sensors to detect wet hair and an accelerometer and gyroscope to measure your brushing power. Depending how you feel about smart products, the Hair Coach is either ingenious or an overpriced way of finding out you’re brushing too hard. All the information is sent to a WiFi-connected app, giving you the data in real time. Available fall 2017. Price TBD.
