The Park-a-Dot is a high-tech parking sensor that is designed to make it easier than ever for you to ensure that you always move the entirety of your vehicle into your parking garage before closing the door.

Currently the subject of a crowdfunding campaign over on Kickstarter, the $29 Park-a-Dot parking sensor works in conjunction with modern garage door openers' infrared beam systems, that are used to automatically open garage doors. The Park-a-Dot harnesses those same infrared signals, preventing the garage door from shutting unless the car is safely inside.

Designed to be installed in a matter of minutes, the Park-a-Dot is an innovative and inexpensive solution for an age-old problem that will be familiar to anyone who has ever damaged their vehicle by pulling into their garage too hastily.
