Headlights are quite powerful today. Allow for the insertion of one or more colored light filters to create custom projections as you drive the car.

Drive around pretending to be Batman, or, with the optional digital feed, create a DriveIn Theater wherever you go!

Curvy Turn Signals Would work well with this. [Worldgineer, Feb 02 2005]

       <rant>Car headlights are too bright today! No studies have been done on the potential damage caused by modern halogen beams on the retinas! I'm an old man!</rant>   

       This is pretty cool.

       DLP headlights, yeah:   

       Using a radar system, the intensity of the headlights could be at a relatively low level over most of the scene and automatically highlight obstacles in the road ahead   

       Or make very expensive pseudoshadow puppet animations to entertain you while driving   

       Or in concert with a navigation system, a sort of HUD that projects driving directions on to the road at night (turn arrows, compass, etc.)

       Interesting, [Abs], I wonder if I could get a special effect going if the car is bouncing.

       I thought this idea was a way of finding your car at night. You know -- send a signal, the car will shine a bat symbol up into the air, you follow it back to your car. This will help in crowded, dark parking lots late at night.
