    LED license plate

    http://www.signwavez.com/catalogue.php?cat=streetwavez

    I think this is kinda a cool mod for a gadget geek.

    They sell for liek $200 USD everywhere.

    I was looking in Summit Racing magazine and saw a pic of it.
    It was only $69.95 USD.

    I had to search for the part # on their website (swt-swa-rt-chr)

    can those be connected to the carputer for custom realtime message like >get out< or >you're too close<???

    (or maybe >back off< or the F word)

    it won't be legal as a lot of states have the county or city sticker between the bottom two screws right where the LED is.

    What you need is a LCD number plate that flashes parts of the characters on and off at a speed that is fast enough for the human eye not to notice, but slow enough so that speed cameras (and their flash) do not get a recogniseable number (or get one that is not yours).

    Now that would be cool - but you just screwed any chance you had of getting a patent!

    Or you could link it to your GPS & speed camera locations database and have it change to "**** U" as you go past! hehe
