If you just don't seem to have luck catching the attention of a cab driver, there's still hope for you. A British company invented the Taxi Hailer which resembles an indicator light mounted in a sleek iPod case. The idea is simple, just point the flasher out on the street, and presto; the taxi cab driver is there.

"The most common method of hailing a taxi in the street is by raising a hand, however it only works if the driver sees you," the site explains, adding that 96% of taxi drivers will stop for the first person they see.

"Taxi Hailer embraces this common international body language of raising a hand, and clearly identifies you as a fare to the taxi driver."

"Using a energy efficient super bright LED flashing light, the Taxi Hailer is an inexpensive, credit card size and a simple to operate product that will assist you in quickly hailing a taxi."
