Slow Down, Michael: Knight Rider K.I.T.T. USB Car Charger

July 9, 2015


This is the $30 Knight Rider K.I.T.T. USB Car Charger available from ThinkGeek. It plugs into a car's 12V power socket/cigarette lighter and has two USB charging ports. Plus it lights up and talks. However it will NOT drive your car for you, although I convinced my roommate it would and now I'm supposed to go visit him in the hospital later.

Light bars sync to audio which plays back noises and 11 different phrases from the TV show

I am a Knight Industries 2000 with a thousand megabits of memory and a 1 nanosecond access time.
I'm very pleased to meet you.
Anything you can think of, I'm sure I can perform.
My sensors are picking up some very strange vibrations.
If you'll permit me, I have a solution.
May I suggest you put the car in the auto-cruise mode for safety's sake.
I fail to see the logic of that statement.
I'm going to have to make a pit stop very shortly.
If it weren't for me you'd be walking.
As a machine I believe I'm quite fortunate not to have your human dependency upon oxygen for your survival.
Next time you want something handled in a specific way, please be sure to tell me ahead of time.

Thankfully, the charger also has a mute mode so you don't have to listen to K.I.T.T. run his mouth all the time. There is nothing worse than taking a road trip with someone who doesn't know when to stop talking. They just keep at it no matter how loud you turn the radio up thinking they'll get the hint until eventually you can't take it anymore and unfasten your seatbelt and barrel roll out the driver's side door. I have had to do that so many times I have still not seen the Grand Canyon.

Keep going for a closeup in case you're having trouble making your purchasing decision.
