Anthony Williams is a die-hard Las Vegas Raiders fan who will tell it to the world from the battery-operated “Rplate” digital license plate at the back end of his Tesla.
“I can put up my favorite sports team — mine is the Raiders — and I can change the background colors,” said Williams, who lives in Huntington Beach, California. “There are hundreds of messages to choose from on the app. It runs the gamut. There’s ‘Gone Fishing’ … or my neighbor is a huge Lakers fan, and when Kobe Bryant passed away, we both displayed ‘Kobe RIP.’”
The plate is functional, too. Running through an app on his phone, it relieves him of the hassle of going to California’s Department of Motor Vehicles for his registration, messing with plate stickers, and it can alert other drivers that his car is stolen. But his favorite feature is the message display on the plate, which he can change using the app to say whatever he fancies on any given day.
