Rear Window Emoticons Broadcast Driver’s Mood To The Road

Rear Window Emoticons Broadcast Driver’s Mood To The Road
Innovation

Communicate, or even flirt with other drivers without using the horn.

MotorMood is like status updates for your car, giving you a safe and easy way to share your feelings with other drivers. If you’re having a good day, then share that feeling with others stuck in traffic; if someone is bumper-to-bumper with you, show them you’re not impressed; or if someone catches your eye in the rear-view mirror, give them a cheeky wink.

Faces are turned on and off by a small remote control that attaches to your car’s sun visor. Each face has its own remote with one easy-to-use button. You can display as many faces on your car as you want, as long as there is enough space for all the remote controls to fit on your sun visor.

Launching just in time for Christmas, you can get your hands on three classic emotions: “happy,” “angry,” and “flirty.” Purchase them individually or get the whole set, giving you an easy way to communicate that doesn’t involve your car horn. Well aware that you have more than three emotions in your arsenal, the company will be releasing new faces and messages over time.

The company also has an upcoming Kickstarter campaign planned, but you will have to sign up on their website to find out when exactly that is.
