It's amazing if you think about it: We've come so far in the world of communications in the last 20 years. But even in the digital age of internet, our inter-vehicle communications are still limited to the horn and the ever-popular one-finger salute. That's why we think the Drivemocion might be incredibly useful.

The Drivemocion is a battery-powered wireless message sign that can be attached to the rear window of your car with a suction cup. A remote control unit is kept in the front of the car (fixed to front window, dash, or laid in a storage compartment) to activate the messages by pressing one of its buttons.

With "The Original" model, you'll have five buttons to choose from, so you can smile or wink, or chose one of 3 text messages: 'thank you,' 'sorry' and 'back off.' In subsequent versions, you can have your choice of animated faces or, in a show of irony (or laziness, we're not sure which), a middle finger.

That's way easier than cursing the old lady that cut you off at the stop sign. Especially because she doesn't even hear you... or care.
