LuxBlaster is an Arduino gizmo that detects and tracks the most intense light source then sends back an intense light in the same direction.

Beware, rude drivers. The LuxBlaster is coming!! When you drive at night, every once in a while a car will approach you from behind with its annoying high beam turned on. Most of the time, the driver of the car will remember to lower the lights. But on rare occasions you will run into some crazed driver who will blast his/her high beams from behind to prod you into shifting to another lane quickly even if you are following the speed limit. The smart thing to do is to let this rude driver pass. But just for fun, here’s the dream gadget that would have given those crazy drivers a taste of their own medicine.
