It’s hard to convey thanks while you’re behind the wheel, but a new company is setting out to change that. Introducing MotorMood, a light-up emoticon that is hung in your car’s back window which allows you to thank other drivers on the road with a push of a button.

If you’ve ever been sitting at a left turn for 5 minutes and then someone finally stops to let you make your turn, that person deserves a thanks. Sure, a wave is nice, but wouldn’t an illuminated smiley face be even better? With the MotorMood, all you would need to do is reach up to your visor and click the button that comes with it to show your thanks. Instantly, your smiley face will illuminate. The company already has custom MotorMoods available as well. The MotorMood can be pre-ordered on Kickstarter for $19 with shipping expected in December. [Purchase]
