Annoyed by slow walkers? You need this car horn for pedestrians
The petrolhead’s equivalent of “I’m walkin’ ovah here!!”
Over the past few decades, cities have been growing exponentially meaning there are more and more people clogging up the pavements. For vehicles using the roads, the easiest way to complain about a jam is using a loud horn that may or may not move people out of the way. Unfortunately, pedestrians don’t have that advantage when confronted with inconsiderately slow wanderers.
Unless you have the mouth of a New Yorker, there’s not much chance of you getting a clear path to your destination. With that in mind, entrepreneur Yosef Lerner decided to take action. Earlier in the month, Yosef showed off his new invention on his YouTube channel, and here it is: a pedestrian horn.
Very basically, the device is a steering wheel that’s been ripped straight out of a Cadillac. Just like a normal steering wheel, a simple press in the centre unleashes the almighty bark of an airhorn. It’s held around the neck like its musical twin, the electric guitar and is held in place thanks to a seatbelt that matches the wheel.
Originally, Lerner had put his creation up for sale on his website for $699, which when your surrounded by a herd of zombie-like people won’t feel too expensive. However, he quickly took the product down from his personal site as he says it conflicts with his message of not contributing to the noise in cities.
Therefore, it seems only the inventor himself can avoid doing his best Midnight Cowboy impression when someone gets in his way.
