Everyone likes those fun ringtones that you can get for your cell phones right!?! How about some tones for indicators in the car such as: oops, you left your keys in there, your lights are on, interior light is on, etc.

       "Honey, I forget....did we assign the 'Gilligans Island theme' to the low fuel indicator, or door ajar?"
"No, silly, Gilligans Island means engine service required."
"Oh, yeah"

       Ringtones? But what would you display on that huge screen in the middle of the dash? What you need is a family of cheeky characters who will appear on the screen and chastise you vociferously, yet in a humourous and loving fashion, about whatever you should have (not) done. In much the same way that useful paperclip works for MS Word.

       Brake failure warning.   

       [Ludwig], may you roast in Hell for eternity for even suggesting that.

no more fuel in your car..."

       "It's a 106 miles to Chicago. You got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and you're wearing sunglasses."   

       Anyone remember the voice synthesis system on the BL Maestro ?

       Apparently, some of the latest fighter aircraft have the synthesised voice for really dire emergency messages programmed with the pilot's wife (or mother) shouting at them. It seems that no matter how desperate and distracted, men still respond to their mother shouting at them.   

       Sounds "cruel and unusual" to me.

       Let's see...first of all... [tyskland], I was being sarcastic. [krelnik], Hilarious! [8th], //Brake failure warning// mwhahahhaahhaha [N@N], Yes! Bohemian Rhapsody! Thanks everyone!

       Sarcasm has a habit of not porting well onto paper, and i don't get why you would post an idea that was sarcasm.   

       For future notice, there was soem discussion on the virtues of 'sarcy marks' in one idea. I think " " will suffice.

       [tyskland], Do you ever have anything nice to say?

       [Steve DeGroof]: That is a great find, that QuikWave device! I want one and wired so that my peeved voice tells my daughter to turn off the lights every time she leaves the room.
bristolz, Dec 04 2002
  

       ([SD]: the motion detector powered only when the switch is on would eliminate the need for the light sensor. Sounds like easy bake to me.)
half, Dec 04 2002
  

       But wouldn't that constantly be triggering when she is in the room? I want it as she leaves the room.
bristolz, Dec 04 2002
  

       Kinda depends on where you put the motion detector (and whether you are triggering on motion or lack of motion).
half, Dec 04 2002
  

       bris, I think of you now - every time I turn on a light :)
hey look up - young loves dream - I thought waxing was a bloke!

       //Kinda depends on where you put the motion detector (and whether you are triggering on motion or lack of motion).//   

       You could just use one of those sensors that they used to use in stores at the doors (dont see them much anymore) where if you walk through it, it breaks a beam of light, or a laser or whatever it is. If you used two, it could tell if someone is coming in or out.   

       // "Everyone likes those fun ringtones that you can get for your cell phones right!?!" Wrong!//   

       I nearly cried the first time i heard beethoven's 9th, 4th movement as a ringtone. I'm sure beethoven vomits in his grave ever time that ringtone sounds. the 9th wasn't mean't for MIDI quality.

       why not just leave the kid in her room?

       When I had a phone with a programmable (rather than just selectable) ringtone I used the Prince of Demark march. The trills made it quite audible, but it's not a tune I've heard on any other phone.
