Introducing MotorMood
A better way to say thanks on the road

 
 

Say thanks on the road

 

The road can often feel like a hostile place full of traffic jams and miscommunication. We're here to change that! MotorMood is an accessory for your car which lets you say thanks to other drivers using a remote controlled light-up happy face in your rear window.






 
 

Just a single push of a button

 

MotorMood is ridiculously easy to use! A single push of the remote button lights up the happy face for 6 seconds before it automatically turns off. And, most importantly, you never have to take your eyes off the road.

 
 
 

Light up the night

 

MotorMood uses a proprietary light guide display to create a beautiful, high quality image on the road. The brightness has been carefully optimized for nighttime usage so that it's bright and vibrant, but does not interfere with visibility or safety






 
 
 

Installs in 30 seconds

 

The face attaches to the inside of your car's rear window using removable adhesive clips. If you want to switch colors or change the batteries, the face easily slides out.







 
 
 
 

Right where you need it

 

The remote slides onto your sun visor just like a garage door opener. It's easy to reach but doesn't get in your way. And of course, everything is wireless and battery powered.






 
 

Features

 

We've spent untold hours fine tuning the engineering and design to make your experience fun, safe, and simple. Here are some of the features that make MotorMood great.

Changeable Faces

With just a twist of the face's outer ring you can insert new colors. Initial colors are blue, pink, and green.

 

Wireless

Infrared communication between the face and remote ensures a reliable and battery saving experience.

 

Backlit Remote

An LED on the back of the remote casts a soft light on your car's sun visor to let you know how long the face stays lit up.

 

Battery Powered

The face uses four AA batteries and the remote uses one coin cell. Batteries last 6 months.

 

LED Backlit Display

MotorMood uses a special LED light-guide display to create a colorful vibrant image.

 

Optimized for Night

We've optimized the display's brightness for nighttime use when simple hand waves aren't visible.

  • "MotorMood is like status updates for your car, giving you a safe and easy way to share your feelings with other drivers."

    ROSS BROOKS - PSFK

     
  • "Conveying your feelings to neighbouring vehicles on the road usually involves abrupt lane changes, flipping the bird, or weighing down on the horn, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Motor Mood aims to change our on-road interactions."

    - Gear Hungry

     
  • "A group of entrepreneurs is looking to give drivers a safer way to convey their emotions on the road. Their remedy: emoticons mounted in car windows to broadcast driver moods."

    ANDERS HOWMANN- OC Register

     
  • "The purpose of showing our car emotions is to make us "a little more human" while making driving "a lot more fun."
