So, let's say you're in Stuttgart to visit the friendly folks at Mercedes-Benz. (They could use a little attention, since their competition's hogging the headlines.) During the night, a major fire breaks out down the road, but your TV's off, and there aren't any civil defense sirens, so how are you to know? By all the car horns going off, of course. Rather than install expensive warning systems, a company called INT has designed a satellite system that will sound the horns of MY2010 and later vehicles in case of an emergency -- and using GPS, those alarms can be localized. Someone is using his (or her) noggin. [OhGizmo via AutoMotto]
