The road can often feel like a hostile place full of traffic jams and miscommunication. We're here to change that! CarMoji by 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.

Everything is designed to be safe, simple, beautiful, and easy to use. Oh, and did we mention it's also a lot of fun?


CarMoji was born out our frustration with traffic and our desire to make driving a more enjoyable experience. We’re from Los Angeles, a place famous for beautiful weather and notorious for long slow commutes. Driving there and in many places around world can be a dehumanizing and isolating experience. We’re surrounded by people and yet we’re separated by glass, steel, distance, and speed. All too often this brings out the worst in drivers. But every now and then there are good Samaritans who make gracious gestures.

It occurred to us that if more people said thank you, drivers would feel encouraged to drive more politely and the road would be a more hospitable place. That’s when the idea for CarMoji was born: a simple but powerful device to share good will when the usual hand wave isn’t visible.


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.
