James Bond's car has a license plate that rotates and exposes different license numbers. I would like to see a similar "tri-face" vehicle mounted device that would rotate to expose long multi-part messages, or different messages. A larger four sided version of the machine could be roof mounted. Small "bumper sticker" sized versions of the machine could be body mounted.

This is a variation of the striking "tri-vision" highway billboard

The device could be used for business or pleasure.

A similar vehicle messaging machine is the marquis type electronic billboard that can be attached to the rear window.

       Sounds like a WTCTTISI(and so on). Fun though.

       [hidden truths] WTCTTISI?   

       I would like to see this, but with the ability to control which side is showing. i.e. When the car behind you is all over your rear bumper you can flip your "jamesbondbumpersticker" to something along the lines of GET OFF MY A$$!! Enjoy the bun. +

It is usually given as a reason for a marked for deletion tag.

       You could do this in a space-efficient way by having a mini-version of those ads they have on the sidelines at sporting matches. That is, with rows of triangular prisms that all turn at once to show a new message. Could be only millimetres thick... (+)
