A new Volkswagen app generates electronic music symphonies in tandem with your driving tempo. That means that whatever mood you are in when driving your car gets detected by the app and it plays mellifluous sounds that accompany your temperament.

Volkswagen has literally converted its automobiles into disc jockeys. The “Play the Road” iOS App uses a ton of data gathered from the car components in order to generate beautiful musical sounds. These match the mood of the driver as he twists and turns or speeds up and slows down the car.

The brainchild of electronic music trendsetters, Underworld, the new app is a marvel to listen to. If you are moving along at a leisurely pace, smooth synthetic tones can be heard. Upon making a left or right turn, the notes seem to undergo a waterfall like crescendo or diminuendo respectively.

At a speedier level, the dulcet notes are accompanied by drums. Finally, at super-speeds the whole effect undergoes a fade-out and only revives its beat when the driver slows down. The smart and savvy application employs the data stored from the gyroscope and accelerometer to change the music in accordance with the time and place.

A trip in the countryside may result in the twittering of birds to materialize on the sound system. It is indeed a magical device that will be the darling of the drivers of the German car. However, all vehicle-maneuvering ladies and gentlemen will have to wait awhile since Volkswagen is still testing this wonderful app.
