Play tunes with your car…No, really

Link with video: Melody Road

We had no reason to offer any further proof that Japan is the unquestionable winner when it comes to wacky inventions, but the Melody Road convinces us our judgment is completely accurate. The Melody Road will allow a car passing above it to play a simple tune, which is made audible by ridges on the road’s surface. The pitch of the note created is increased by increasing the frequency of the ridges…


Interstate 15 which runs up the western side of Utah doesn’t play tunes, it just plays an incessant high pitched whine from ridges across the driving surface. Really annoying after two or three hours. The purpose of the ridges? Shrug.
