DIY smart cruise control.

Speederaser visually slows your car in speed-zones.
Here are the build photos:

Pulse and Glide is a advanced technique.
Lets say we are in a 55MPH zone.
I drive my car to 60MPH
Clutch in
Shift to neutral
Kill the engine with a switch
Lift clutch
Slow down to 45MPH
Clutch in
Shift to 5th
bumpstart by lifting the clutch to get the engine started
Go 60MPH
repeat

More useful in slower speeds.

The device has two modes, speed limit only, and speed limit + Visual.
The Visual is still in development.
The video above shows the speed-limit-only mode.

It lowers the speed after you cross the new zone? Thats a great way to get a ticket. I normally click off when I approach the warning sign of a new speed zone and by time I get the new speed limit Ive coasted down to the slower speed.
