Frivolous but fun idea

Wed Sep 26, 2012 8:15 pm

Hi,

So, since this is the digital 21st century and computer memory is inexpensive, what about this?

We all know there is the low tone noise built into the Leaf to alert visually impaired people (or those who can't walk without having their eyes glued to their cell phone). Why not let us choose what tone we'd like?

Nissan could include a number of choices, and people could create and upload their own (like ringtones). We could have Leafs whispering down the street to the sound of:

The Jetsons airship noise
Horse clip-clopping down a cobblestone street
Train going chugga-chugga-chugga
Rowers stroking in time to the beat ("Ramming speed" anyone...?)
The "Jaws" theme
Flamenco guitar

I'm sure others could come up with even better suggestions...! I know, I know, this thread doesn't hold a candle to the arguments about locking EVSE cables and better navigation systems, but hey! Have fun with the car!

The jetsons' sound would be pretty cool.

Keep in mind that the system in the leaf is not just playing a pre-recorded sound. It actually changes the sound based upon the speed of the vehicle.

Actually, I always liked "The Jetsons" theme song. Big band jazz at its best.

You think a throaty V8 sound signifies power?

Bah!

When you hear THIS sound, then you're talking power!

I noticed you're still working with polymers.
