Drowsy or distracted driving happens to all of us: whether you’ve been on the road for hours and you’re starting to yawn, or you’re getting text and call alerts left and right on your phone, everyone’s struggled to keep their eyes on the road at some point during their driving life. However, just because it’s common doesn’t mean it’s okay, and keeping your eyes on the road and your mind alert can prevent injuries and save lives. Ridy is a distracted driving and drowsy driving alert device that uses machine learning to help you stay safe.

Ridy is a remarkable, windshield-mounted device that uses machine learning to read your facial expressions. It catches yawns and notes when your eyes stop focusing on the road, then beeps to bring your attention back to what’s in front of you. It installs on any car in just 60 seconds, and it’s perfect for young drivers, late-night drivers, or anyone who’s packing up their car for a lengthy road trip. For added security, the information Ridy collects about your facial recognition is entirely private — you won’t even need to be on a WiFi network to use the device.

Ridy usually costs $129, but right now it’s 23% off for a sale price of $129.
