If you’re dreaming of a fancy new ride, but can’t deal with the car payments, try this FenSens Smart License Plate Frame on for size instead.

The FenSens looks like a regular license plate holder, but is actually a smart wireless parking sensor that alerts you when you get too close to objects. Yes, just like those fancy backup cameras in newer cars. The best part is that you can install it in five minutes without any professional help.

Just pop it on your car, pair it with your phone, and the FenSens will give you instant visual, audio, and vibration alerts. So you’re good to back up anywhere you please. It’ll run for about five months. After that, you’ll need to charge it up with the micro USB cable and it’ll be good for another five.

No need to be jealous of your friend’s wheels. Just get the FenSens Smart License Plate Frame for $119.99 from the Daily Dot store, reduced from the original price of $149.99 and 100% cheaper than a new car.
