Classic cars are nothing to scoff at. Many of them are relics of the past, or at the very least hold a lot of sentimental value. But of course, older cars aren’t equipped with backup cameras or parking sensors – features which are quickly becoming standard and even mandated by law on new vehicles.

Get the best of both worlds – enjoy your older car and park easier with this intelligent license plate frame. It works by sending audio, haptic, and visual alerts to let you know when you’re too close to another vehicle or object. It’s weather resistant and has anti-theft features to ensure the device’s longevity.
