Twelve Days of Christmas: High-Tech Hand Signals

Follow Marty

You've done it again, haven't you? There are just nine days 'til Christmas--six 'til Hanukkah--and you haven't even made a dent in your shopping. Tsk, tsk.

But don't panic. We have a gift that's perfect for most of the folks on your list--at least those old enough to drive. It's moderately priced, relatively rare, and it's the very definition of handy-dandy. In fact, it's called "The Hand."

Basically, it's the next major offering for the "cute/annoying window sticker" market--one that's been in serious decline since the demise of "Baby on Board" in the mid-1990s. Specifically, "The Hand" is a sticker that's controlled via a remote, which the driver can attach to her/his sun visor. Using electroluminescent technology straight outta Spencer Gifts, the hand can assume one of seven signs, ranging from the hokey "Hang loose" to the predictable bird-flip to the totally awesome Vince Neil-style "shout at the devil." Why waste your own energy telling off tailgaters or hailing hotties when something battery-powered can do it for you?

Of course, here at TheCarConnection.com, we've got much simpler tastes. Frankly, one $3.99 Road Rage Air Freshener would put us over the moon. Hint hint.-- Richard Read

  1. I love this but the "live long and prosper" sign is missing :-( But since the world is going to end in 2013 (or is it next year?), I guess it's irrelevant after all...

    Bad stuff?

  2. Wow. That really is a missed opportunity. And you know the propellerhead who designed it is kicking himself for overlooking the obvious.
    As for end-of-the-world scenarios, the Maya have it pegged for 2012: http://www.exitmundi.nl/Maya.htm

  3. I have a great respect for the Mayas but I go by what the hidden code of the bible says :-) It also gives us a couple of extra months to go all out.
