If you’ve given up trying to conquer your road rage, you can at least flip off other drivers more safely with this new device from PerpetualKid.com. But we hasten to add that there are lots of other, nicer, things you can use it for, too…

The Hand is a 9 in. x 6 in, flourescent pink, glow-in-the-dark hand that attaches to any window in your vehicle with suction cups and can be programmed to display any of seven different finger configurations via a handy (pun intended!) wireless remote which can be clipped to your visor for easy access.

“The Hand will create a attention-grabbing sensation wherever it is used!” the PerpetualKids.com Web site declares, in what some would consider a masterful understatement. The site also makes an oblique reference to checking local ordinances before deploying The Hand where you live. There are apparently jurisdictions where flipping someone the bird, even by remote control, can earn you a ticket…

Our only criticism of this innovative new product is, it doesn’t perform the Vulcan ‘Live long and prosper!’ salute. Maybe in the next version…

The Hand is available directly from PetperualKid.com for (US)$39.95 plus shipping and handling. It runs on four AA batteries which are not included.

Our thanks to TLP fan Erin Mills of Ottawa, Canada, for this New Product story tip!
