Pimp Your Ride

Need a little extra bling for your car? Are the spinner rims just too commonplace for you? Check out these LED car rims I saw on the Gizmodo site. There is a video here. The idea is similar to the Fantazein clocks that display time and scrolling messages that appear to be floating in air. By synchronizing the LED movement to the on/off state, an illusion of a static image is created. These rims have full color LEDs to give a full color image. The rims are also programmable via a wireless network so you can change the display as you’re driving along. Sounds neat except for the 12k + price tag.
