minding your own business when you suddenly find yourself
in a full-blown car chase with cops 'n' sirens 'n' all.
The trouble is, your car radio's still on the Home Gardening
Show with that lisping fool who can't say "secateurs"

UBCo Electronics have devised an, err... device, that
identifies a little of what's going on around you and begins
to play the right music for the circumstances.

pressure, speed and cornering forces will tell the device
most of what it needs to know to choose for you.
