It's no secret that texting while driving is a dangerous - and often illegal activity - but it's something that occurs regardless of possible safety risks and being pulled over by the police. A new service from RayGo uses voice prompts to interact with your smartphone, and will automatically pause if the driver is going too fast.



RayGo hopes to give drivers a safer method to interact with text messages, as the app connects to a five-key Bluetooth controller mounted to a driver's steering wheel. In addition to text messages, users can interact with Gmail, Spotify, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp, with messages being read through the vehicle's speakers.


"RayGo is a product for the many of us who use their phones even though we know it's wrong, providing a much safer way to engage with your smartphone while driving," according to the RayGo on its Indiegogo page. The company wanted $30,000, and has raised $31,900 with 11 days left.
