You're talking too close LEDs   (+8, -1)  [vote for, against]
Please sir, maintain a confortable distance

Don't you just hate it when you're with one of those people that have to speak right in your face? A proximity detector attached to a traffic-light color coded three LED set would warn such people of this inconvenience. This device would also include a loudspeaker with some automatic messages:

3 secs on red-light: "Sir/Madam, you are making me unconfortable. Please step back a little."
7 secs on red-light: "I've already asked politely to step back..."
12 secs on red-light: " *shouting* You stupid motherf****, step away from my face or I'll kick your sorry little ass from here to the West Indies!!!"

While the messages were playing you could keep your friendly face in cases like bosses or something.

20 secs on red-light: small tranquillizer dart shoots out and the space-invader slumps quietly to the floor.

Someone on HB thinks so far from the box that all their effort is in assaulting it with razor sharp fishbones.
