We don’t know about you, but we’re planning on replacing our left
blinker click with the THX intro
and the right one with the startup sound
a Mac makes. What about you?
Could it happen? CNET pundit Rafe Needleman let us know via email he asked this very question after reading a
Ford press release that reveals turn signals of today emit a digital tone that has been meticulously engineered by
dudes in white labcoats. In the past that familiar clicking sound that accompanied those flashing green arrows was
caused by a mechanical relay. With the electronic revolution having banished nearly all mechanical operations in a car
besides the engine itself, it’s feasible we could be downloading custom blinker tones for our pimped rides in the
very near future.
