If you’ve been envious of cars that have built-in backup cameras, Fort Collins-based Trail Ridge Technologies has the next best thing: a camera system that doesn’t require drilling holes and routing wires in your car. The aftermarket system relies on wireless technology to produce a wide-angle view of what’s behind.

After a combined 45 years of creating products at Hewlett-Packard, two engineers broke off to try it on their own. The impetus? Many smaller, innovative ideas never make it to market at a large company. Trail Ridge Technologies found a small market for its products, like the Estudia InkLink pen that turns handwritten notes into digital text. But who handwrites anymore?

Going for a bigger audience, Trail Ridge developers literally looked backward. It came up with the QuickVu wireless backup camera for the millions of cars without one. The two-piece QuickVu includes a battery-powered camera, which attaches to the rear license plate, and a 4.3-inch monitor for the dashboard. The two connect wirelessly, so there’s no need to run cables through the car (other than a power cord for the display).

QuickVu, which has night-vision capabilities, also displays a wider rear view than other aftermarket backup cams. By targeting a larger market with simpler installation, Trail Ridge may be onto something. TopTenReviews calls it “one of the best backup cameras on the market.”
