Turn Signal Groove

Groove to the beat of your turn signal

I was driving the other day and as I prepared for a turn I got hypnotized by the tic-tic-tic-tic-tic-tic sound from the turn signal. So I started drumming in the steering wheel along the beat of the turn signal. So I thought it would be more interesting to have small Drum loops or even synth loops replace the sound of the turn signal. And to really get it on some drum pads in the steering wheel, to get conga sounds coming out from the stereo speakers. Maybe even sounds for every time I step on the accelerator and break so that everything together makes a chord or something.

       I frequently tap out "SOS" with my turn signals just so I can watch the expression on the rear passenger's face.

       Synthesized turn signal click sounds. Just the sound, or would the rhythm also carry to the lights? At first, I was thinking this would tie the turn signals in to the beat of the music being played on the stereo ("color organ" technology).   

       Hmmm...morse code turn signals...shouldn't be too hard to bake...program it to blink your phone number or something if you're seeking to meet people that are very observant and know morse code. [RS]: you could post that as its own idea.

       [Aluxe] If I can blow my own trumpet, I think I've sort of half baked this before, see link.

       Hi [Aluxe] wheras I'm thrilled that the inventor of the Person look a like finder deigns to come up with an idea similar to my humble bling tone. A first for me, as it normally happens the other way round with me re-halfbaking, even my damn reunification of Pangea !
