Watch This: Underworld teams up with Volkswagen to reinvent driving music

Who doesn’t enjoy driving music? What if you could create music while you drove as well? You may be able to soon, thanks to Underworld and Volkswagen’s innovative “Play the Road” project. The eye-opening app derives RPM and speed data from a Golf GTI’s onboard computer, combines it with accelerometer, gyroscope and GPS data from the iPhone and uses musical programming language Pure Data to compose real-time music and effects based upon the movements of the car. Check out the video above showing the app in action, and forget you ever heard the term “satellite radio.” More details and additional videos are available here.
