Push the button on the key-fob and on the car a small hatch pops open and a balloon on a string wafts up to show you where your car is. Push the button again (or enter the vehicle) and the balloon is reeled back in.

Much more useful than the prevalent remote "chirp" which often seems multidirectional due to the acoustics of a parking garage. Also useful for deaf drivers.

       A happy sad ending. The credits roll. The coats and scarves wrap around hurried bodies. Dozens of balloons suddenly take to the air. Quick, Eddie, get the slingshot!
