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.
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?
