We’re loving us this Slide To Unlock Magnet, because it’s so ridiculous. Of course it really needs to be attached to the side of a very expensive Mercedes or something to have a total effect, but what we really want to know is why don’t we have this function available on cars anyway?
After all, it’s definitely not rocket science to allow people to slide their car doors open, either through the use of a finger or a dongle in the pocket, and yes we know there are remote key fobs which open doors already.
But why not make it so the door opens automatically when you approach or even with a wave of the hand? That would be very useful (especially when you’ve got an armful of shopping and it’s raining). Anyhoo, for now we’re going to be patient and maybe consider shelling out the $5.22 for this magnet in the hope it will make a statement.
Should look great on the door of our company Trabant.
