Former Nasa engineer Mark Rober creates friendly car horn
Driving can be stressful and it's not helped when you're getting beeped at for something small, like not going when the light changes to green. But now there's a solution.
A former Nasa engineer and YouTube creator Mark Rober has come up with a DIY fix to avoid an angry blast from our our fellow drivers. He has created a friendly-sounding car horn.
In an effort to provide more methods of communication, Rober has hacked the horn on his VW Jetta by installing three extra honks.
In his video Rober explains the most used of which is "two super quick chirps of the horn" to get the point across on the road or to pedestrians without seeming aggressive.
Rober says his hacked honk is not only friendly-sounding, but it's not as loud as a normal car horn.
It is all part of the YouTuber's stated aim of making our roads more pleasant by increasing the vocabulary of the standard car horn.
