DrivemocionthumbI really hope I don’t see the Drivemocion on my next trip to New York City. I just know some hacker cab-driver is going to create a way to customize it from the five pre-set messages and I’m afraid of what that taxi is going to say. If you have a pressing need to “show kindness, courtesy and respect” as it were to the car behind you, this is your chance. The Drivemocion mounts to your rear window (presumably not blocking too much of your view, right?) and has a wireless remote that you can dash mount. Press an emoticon button on the remote and voila! You just told people you don’t even know that you’re happy and you know it! Hopefully they don’t clap their hands and cause an accident.There’s no price yet for the Drivemocion that also shares a wink, says “Sorry”, “Back off”, and “Thanks”. So would it be inconsiderate to not flash the “Thanks” after someone lets you in ahead of them in traffic? I’m sticking with my bike. At least until there’s a Cyclomocion…

  1. I Can Has Suicide Now?

  2. Johnson Smith (“Things You Never Knew Existed… but couldn’t possibly live without!”) has sold those little scrolling LED banners that can car-mount. I always thought that was probably illegal, not to mention a bad idea.

    All it takes is a teenager getting hold of the remote… suddenly the soccer-mom-mobile is spewing racial epithets and profanity at traffic.

  3. I bought one of these about 6 months ago. It was shipping from somewhere overseas. I was charged in pounds so not sure what I really paid for it.

    What drew me to it was one of the 5-6 flashes was “IDIOT”. I never was able to get it to mount on the back of my bubble FX-35 rear window. It would hang for about 20 minutes and the weight and angle due to bubble would cause it to drop to the floor.

    The suction cup just wasn’t enough to hold it in my case.

    I’d gladly sell it to someone if they want it.

  4. I just noticed the ad says “SORRY”. Mine is programed to “IDIOT”. Hey, maybe I have a collectors item or edition.
