If you live in an urban area, where you seem to spend as much of your commute to and from work sitting still as you do driving you might be interested in carpool Kenny. Kenny is an inflatable doll that you can use to keep yourself company or trick the popo while you use the HOV lane.
Yes, I am sure the police would not appreciate the fact that you are using an inflatable doll to get into the HOV lane, and I am pretty sure they would be able to tell at a glance that Kenny isn’t real.
However, if you don’t fear the ticket, or the beating you might get if you live in L.A., carpool Kenny is there for you. I guess the risk is better than inviting the weird guy from the cubicle down the hall to ride with you. Via Coolest-Gadgets
