CES: Cobra iRadar

Got plans to drive recklessly but don't want to busted for it? There's an app for that. The Cobra Electronics Corp. has developed iRadar, an app being shown at CES that gives you maps of red light and speed cameras and speed traps, and lets you pair your smart phone to a Bluetooth-enabled radar detector so that you can have real-time information about who's checking your speed.

The app is free, but the compatible radar detector will cost you about $169.95. Seems as if it would be cheaper to just drive the speed limit -- but then you wouldn't get to use cool toys like this.
