Honda’s road plays the Lone Ranger theme song. Really. | November 7, 2008

We’ve seen roads used as media before. There have been murals, graffiti, decals. But, this is definitely new. Lets just leave it at that.

Shizuo Shinoda, a Japanese engineer, was the first to discover that cutting thousands of grooves in asphalt produces sounds when a car drives over it. So, he created a system to play full songs on the road. Honda brought this innovation to the States. Straight to Lancaster, CA. Drive down the quarter-mile stretch of Avenue K and have a listen. Let us know what you think.
