The guys over at ThinkGeek have always had a way of making tech from the inner most nostalgic sci-fi/geeky stuff. Today they may have out done themselves. For $29.99 (about $40 after shipping and taxes) you can become the Knight Rider!
Make no mistake this USB car charger is like no other. It fits into your car charging port and has two 1.0 Amp ports, but it also speaks 11 phrases from the 1980’s TV series Knight Rider.
BE THE HOFF
Our GPSes have gotten us closer to talking cars, but they’re clearly not artificially intelligent the way KITT was. If they were, they wouldn’t be driving us off of bridges under construction. Unless, of course… hey! Wait a minute!
While we get our bikes out of storage, we’d like to introduce you to the Knight Rider KITT Car USB Charger. The Knight Rider KITT Car USB Charger has two USB ports, each capable of charging almost any USB-powered device (both put out 1.0 Amp). But it also has that signature light sequence from KITT’s voicebox we all know and love, synced to respond to 11 different audio phrases from the TV show. And in case you ever need less 80s, there’s a switch to turn the whole thing off or mute him. Possibly so your smart-mouthed car doesn’t speak to the nice officer.

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.
Red LEDs provide the voicebox equalizer visuals
3 position power switch – Off / Mute / On (for when you need less 80s)
Flexible arm pivots up and down so you can better customize it to best fit your vehicle’s power socket placement
