This must be one of the better auto-related April Fools’ jokes. Peugeot has made a system that allows drivers to personalise their car horns using state-of-the-art Audio Sonic technology. They say this it takes individuality to the next level. You can choose from a library of sounds, or create and upload your own horn sound via smartphone. Think of the possibilities.
Peugeot Personalized Horn:
From July 2014 production onwards, brand new Audio Sonic technology will be a standard feature across the entire Peugeot range. This state-of-the-art new technology allows customers to personalise their car horns to reflect their taste and character.
Customers will be able to choose from an extensive library of sounds created at Peugeot’s new Audio Sonic Personalisation Centre. This library will be constantly updated in line with current trends in music, culture and lifestyle.
For even more self-expression, customers can create and upload their own sounds, so that everyone can enjoy a truly individual horn, which they can change whenever they desire, just like changing a mobile ringtone.
The UK’s road environments will lead the world sonically, offering a rainbow of sounds and audio experiences that will be envied the world over.
“Birdsong or Bach, Jazz Trumpet or Dubstep, the only limit will be our customers’ imaginations” commented Orvil Pondaiss, Peugeot’s New Head of Audio Sonic Personalisation, who tested the technology using sounds including his own four-year-old son laughing.
