The road can often feel like a hostile place full of traffic jams, road rage, and miscommunication. We're here to change that. MotorMood is an accessory for your car which lets you share good will with other drivers using a light-up happy face in your rear window.
If someone lets you into their lane, you can thank them by displaying the happy face; or you can use it to apologize for your own driving. It's a simple and fun way to make the road a happier and safer place.
The face is turned on by a small remote control that attaches to your car's sun visor just like a garage door opener. Activation is safe and simple with one easy-to-use button. After 12 seconds the face automatically turns off, and you can continue driving knowing you made the road a better place.
We'll be launching our product on Kickstarter soon! Leave us your email address to receive updates and find out when you can buy a MotorMood happy face. Together we can's make driving a little more human and a lot more happy!
Our mission is to make the road a happy and safe place because, sadly, this is not always the case. Americans spend an average of 910 hours a year in their car. These hours are often filled with traffic jams, frustration, and miscommunication. Furthermore road rage is often on the news, and in the United States there are an average of 200 road rage fatalities a year. The specter of these incidents adds an additional level of anxiety for drivers. These anxieties are especially prevalent before and after making traffic maneuvers.
MotorMood reduces road rage anxiety and driving related misunderstandings by offering a richer level of positive communication that facilitates better understanding between drivers. When used in potentially inflammatory situations, our light up happy face diffuses tempers and replaces frowns with smiles. It goes a long way when you can communicate "thanks" and "sorry" and show another driver you're a human being and not a two ton cube of glass and steel.
On a lighter note, our product also adds a fun and playful element to the road which can help reduce feelings of boredom and isolation drivers sometimes experience. So give MotorMood a try. Together we can make driving a little more human and a lot more happy.
