Laser-guided Tires

Never miss your target

Bill was driving along the deserted highway, when he spied a large plastic jug laying in the middle of the road. Being the conservative citisen he was, he decided to run it over.

Not wanting to miss like last time, he reached to a switch on the dashboard and flipped on his newly installed laser guided tire sights. The lasers were mounted parallel to the tires with a lens that created a visible line. The result was a solid red line that extended three metres directly in front of each tire.

With such precision and technology, the poor plastic jug didn't have a chance. It rolled under the tire with a resounding "fwoomp". Bill switched off the lasers and continued on his way.

Buying this product automatically puts you on the SPCA's most wanted list.

Wake up baker. My message isn't readable.Reminds me that I have a job for gameboys. Tractors in the fields need guiding with lasers/targets/wireless internet/vid cams so that the farmers can get on the internet more/have a life/ the usual.

       Instead of a single dot, it projects a very thin rectangle. Think of a laser level.

       I think a full targetting system with beeps and fancy moving reticles and pointless distance data, so that way you could turn it off and just use the force anyways and cream the jug using Ben's help.....
