A Road that Plays a Melody
« on: January 13, 2008, 10:02:31 am »

Is this perhaps the longest instrument ever created?

The longest piece of music!

Music can make me get right up out of my chair and start dancing or it can get me so pumped up I have to walk around the block.
It can also knock me back and make me sit there and cry like a little baby. This shit is as powerful as any drug!!!

For some time now I have wondered when someone would come up with a cut or molded pattern in pavement that would —when a car passes at or above a particular speed— synthesize a voice that tells the driver to slow down.

From that video it would seem the implementation of such a road could be imminent.

Although I imagine it would be rather startling the first time someone heard it.  Slow 'em down right into a tree.

The driver would probably have to speed waaaaay over the legal limit in order to hear that. Moment 22 anyone? Smile
