Jason Torchinsky had this “admittedly goofy idea” about turning an old netbook into a highly customized taillight. He’s sketched up the basic plan, and is now daring one of you to go through with it!

 

He says that animated taillight units cost from $100 – $500, so why not go whole hog by “leveraging all the power of these cheap little (netbooks)…” which go for around $100 used.

Jason admits that he has no idea if this is exactly legal, so please don’t spend a lot of energy on this without first checking out your local laws.
