Hologram for safer motoring   (+4)  [vote for, against]
Hologram projector for package shelf images

Travelling by car on long trips may bring one into areas where the culture is much different than one's own. To better fit in and reduce paranoia some people place hats on the package shelf inside the back window of their sedan in the hope these will show them to be smypahtetic to the locals. Bearing logos and coloration such as sports teams, college or professional, or organizations like NASCAR or Police charities the hope is to not get a traffic ticket or have one's car turned over by a violent mob, etc. The propsed invention is a hologram projector linked to data that would be used to project the properly logoed and colored hat onto the package shelf and protect the occupents from above mentioned mayhem. This system would be auto or manual depending on chosen options. Auto mode would be GPS triggered when crossing into unfriendly territory such as certain geopolitical hot spots or other slums.

I reluctanly bunned this...// other slums /// are not the only place you may need this. There are red-neck areas where *yous better have some rifles mounted on a gun rack in the back window*!!

Having your GPS-controlled hologram hacked could cause much ensuant hilarity.

It's not as bad as all that. We won't lynch you if don't have a Rem 870 and a 30-30 displayed proudly in your back window; we just won't respect you.

[Alter] I don't consider all Down-East as redneck, as I'm from New England myself. I was thinking more like Texas! (they are just plain rude!)(and not everyone...)

That's mighty charitable of ya, pardner, but I don't live Downeast. Up here in the mountains we ain't as kindly to strangers.

Actually, that's a lie. We're always happy to greet new visitors and their wallets.
