VW Smartphone App Makes Music as You Drive

VW Smartphone App Makes Music as You Drive

Volkswagen has teamed up with dance Underworld to create a unique smartphone app that will play music based on the way you’re driving.

Though it’s not yet available, the German automaker showed off the app in action with its Golf GTI hatch. Essentially, the app reads how and where you drive, monitoring your vehicle’s speed and RPM data through the on-board computer. It then plays music according to your driving style by making use of the musical programming language Pure Data (PD). It creates music while you drive.

The German automaker is currently allowing people the opportunity to sign up for a chance to get behind the wheel of a new GTI and experience the “Play the Road” app in person.
