Yippee! I finally got my patent on this, so I can now share it with everyone. This is my automated Jeep Hand Waving Device.
As you might imagine there are a lot of Jeeps here in Colorado, and waving at them is not only time consuming, but potentially dangerous on mountain roads. The solution is this device. It uses a camera and image-recognition technology to identify not only TJs and CJs, but a variety of other Jeeps as well. It's all built into the software.
But here's the cool part. You can set the Wave through a series of "enthusiasm levels." It all depends on your personal level. The graphic below shows the factory presets.
It was funny. Why are you giving up on us? I do think an animatronic hand would be cool though.
I'm just sulking. I'm immature like that.
Actually, I thought the animatronic hand would really be fantastic for motorcycles. I live out where all the Denver people go for weekend rides, and in the summertime it's a constant waving thing. You could put a stuffed glove on a spring and it would work just fine.
The wranglers around here don't really wave at each other so much. The CJs still do.
I might just get a manaquin hand and put it on a spring and mount it on my dash.
I get the wave from all CJs and YJs, lifted or not, around here, but the TJs and JKs are less likely, as it seems there are just so many more of them around here, and so many are used like cars. Chrysler succeeded in making the wrangler more appealing to a broader market, but in doing so, there are a lot more jeepers who somehow miss the spririt that seems to flow among the WFers and others of this ilk. C'est la guerre.
Hahahaha! The waving is the part of the "Jeep Thing" I like...the "Just Empty Every Pocket" part, not so much. I just blew $550 on a new Bestop sailcloth replace-a-top. Now I'm broke but I still have wheels, tires, lift, exhaust, bumper, winch, lights...you get the picture...to buy!
