a great product well priced but perhaps some nibbles for those with money and wants. things to upsell the hive, a list of possible optional extras

1. Voice- get the real Bitching Betty to do the prompts
2. Sticker Shaker- a 12v motor with unbalanced shaft clamped to steering assembly to vibrate steering wheel on alert
3.Seat Vibrator. similar to above but add auto on with timer just for giggles
4.Sell serial numbers. who wants number 1? or 007 ?
5. Custom colours ie gold or space grey
6.Engraved. name, plate,or a big Apple logo, State Farm Driving Recorder, Air Purifier, Google Earth Data Recorder
7.Camouflage. Hollowed out book for those going dash bottom mount
8.Stealth. No markings at all
9.Fold up/down post and ring gunsight
10.Faux Hud with glass/plastic at an angle and overlay for surface of unit to resemble projection info ie mph

Interesting ideas. Ebay auctioning serial numbers as you mentioned (1, 007, 50, 100, etc) wouldn't be a bad idea. For custom colors, you could just vinyl wrap it whatever color you want and act as a scratch protector too. A vibration device would be great for any RD that could connect to such a device especially if you have passengers that find RDs annoying when they go off. #6 could be something someone else takes on and makes custom vinyl wraps with other company logos and sell (might run into copyright legal stuff here with using a companies logo for profit). I like the idea of camouflage it as some type of car insurance device! Might help discourage theft but, LEO's would still know what it really is if you got pulled over and they took a real good look at it.

Seriously, you could do a REAL HUD as an add-on. (rear pickup would be harmed, but given a full size rear antenna, it likely has the headroom). All you need is a projector (cheapish: $50 or so given prices I see for bad HUD units online?) and a reflector sticker to apply to the windshield (super-cheap). Most of the after market crappy ones really just show you speed anyway... if you could get speed limit info via a cellphone, that'd be more than enough to be useful.

I think we'll get a FREE set of Ginsu knives with the purchase of Theia.
Telling your age with that suggestion :) Well, I haven't had cable in 7 years, so do they still have Ginsu commercials? I don't remember them being around for decades.

Too bad, I had some cans to cut up. Oh, and then some tomatos to slice.

I like the idea of the vibrating alert. Maybe hooked up via bluetooth to a separate device or your phone.

It'd actually pretty slick.... the whole 'wiggling seat' idea. Thinking about 1 wiggle for radar threats, multiple wiggles for laser threats, etc.

I'm sure it could be done.

I also think a voice pack with Morgan Freeman's voice would be so soothing.

You are joking right? You couldn't stand the seat vibrating system on our rental last week what are you going to do throw a $...... radar detector out the window every time it goes off?

Also, side note: that Yukon had such aggressive seat wiggling. Sheesh! Angry seat. Lol

Love the idea of a HUD of some sort....what I'd really love is an output connector for remote laser jammer with auto-kill built in and user-programmable re-arm time delay...just have it send the signal to the thing, don't need the hardware for this onboard the primary detector. If you can do it and make it a bit cheaper in price than the dedicated units I, and probably many others, would make that upgrade.

Or if you just want to make gobs of money license the tech to everyone else (but please don't)....although with open source you/we will see things happen none of us have ever even considered! Can't wait. Love the videos guys and gals.

The device has bluetooth and ability to modify the OS has been promised. Should be relatively easy to integrate wirelessly with the vibrating device of your choice using this cross-platform library...

Hello this is Theia! There is NO filtering, NONE! Theia is NOT a Frequency Based RD, it only alerts to actual Police Radar because it is the first true Signal Identification Radar Detector! Theia is looking for actual Police Radar Signals not any signal that happens to fall in the Police Radar frequency bands!

Someone was making something like this for Harley owners a long time ago.

They called it the “Vibe Rider”
