SMS on Wheels: CarPong Is Vehicle-to-Vehicle Messaging
December 29, 2009
Did you just get cut off? Is a professional driver behaving badly? Was your car towed? Or better, did you see a cute driver (or a really cool car) in the next lane?
CarPong is a fun an innovative idea that allows users to send messages to other drivers by using their car’s license plate number. Like blog commenting for vehicles, this service lets drivers write messages to other drivers, read what others have said about them and search for notes about other drivers. It’s an interesting way to make our cars – and the people in them – a lot more connected in real life, and it just might work.
