Video Car Alarm
Don’t you wish you could see who dinged your car door, or roughed up your front end while shopping at Bloomingdales for your girlfriend? Or even see whose cat or dog climbed on your car (sorry had to use the picture). Well now you can.
Four Canadian students have invented a car alarm that is coupled with a dueling camera system. The cameras are activated by motion sensor, capture the image, and then store it to a local hard drive in the car. The pictures are then sent, we assume, via email to the owner.
Unfortunately, the system can only be installed on cars sporting a computer system. Also don’t expect to see this product in the mainstream as the inventors aren’t even patenting the alarm system.
Now if they can just figure out a way to capture license plate info of any offending cars/drivers.
