Normally these come with some kind of PDF full of blatant copies of good brands like Martin’s Mac 2000, along with LED striplights, wall washers, and other inexpensive LED lighting.

I just got one from a company (that I shall not name because they CONSTANTLY SPAM ME) that had a pretty funny product being advertised – an LED sign for the inside of your car that sends visual messages to the car behind you, up to and including the middle finger. Meet the “CAR Emotion Light”:
What a phenomenally hilarious idea. Note the middle finger icon that you can display in gleaming red LED light for your already late for dinner angry road raging Hummer driver you just cut off.
