The Driving LED Emoticon

Remote Control Unit
Better communication through technology

This gadget has been an idea in my head for years. Thanks to the people at ThinkGeek, it is now a reality. When driving, the one finger salute is unoriginal and probably not that effective any more, and the horn is more of a road rage tool than anything. We all need a better communication tool and now we have it. The Driving LED Emoticon!

This device is a battery powered wirelessly controlled communication device that attaches to the rear window of your vehicle. The remote control unit can be attached to the front window or the dashboard, allowing you to control the messages the unit displays. The device can display one of five different messages - smiling face, frowning face, "Thanks", "Back Off" and "Idiot". Limited yes, but better than nothing.

  • Displays 5 different messages
  • Mounts on the inside of the rear car window
  • Choose different messages using the wireless remote
  • Main unit is powered by 4 AA batteries
  • Dimensions: 6" dia x 1.25" thick (approximate)
  • Has a power save mode

Right before leaving for Japan I was in a car accident, where my vehicle was rear ended. Although the device is kind of tongue in cheek, maybe the “Back Off” message might have actually prevented the crash.
