R/C Rear Window Hand Flips Off Tailgaters

by Paul Strauss

Want to send a message to the driver that’s been glued to your bumper for the last 5 miles? Just hang this light-up hand on your car’s back window, and you can express your true feelings without getting physical.

Available from Perpetual Kid, the remote-controlled electroluminescent sign ($40) can be set to display a multitude of digit combinations. You can even animate the fingers in sequence. But there are only a couple of signs that I think would be of much use for most of my roadtrips.

I suppose if you’re more mellow than me, you might tell the a-hole behind you to “hang loose”, or you could flash the subtle “L” sign to let them know what a loser they really are.

    Now all we need is a sign that somehow gets the message of “Get out of the f**king passing lane!” to the car in front of you.

    Though I find this quite amusing, a set of ground/ground missiles seems more useful somehow…

  6. Wasn’t there something like this back in the lat 70’s or early 80’s. A hand on a spring that would bobble around and wave after you stuck it on the window with a suction cup.
