Incredibly Loud Horn Coming: Banshee Horn

Horns on motorcycles (and cars) are in principle needed only to be used in case of an emergency. You blow the horn when something is about the happen that requires someone's attention, like a trucker texting his mother while barreling towards the school bus.

If you're driving a truck or maybe a Hummer, chances are your horn will be heard. But bad luck for motorcycle riders, our horns usually sound like a duck with a severe cold. Press the horn, and all you hear is a low quack, or at its best, it'll sound like the Road Runner.

There are many after market horns out there that replace your current one. They are loud, and can be heard by a deaf person. But you can't really use them when youre stopped behind that SUV-driving soccer-mom who hasn't seen the lights go green. If you blast her with a mega-horn, chances are she'll die of a heart attack.

That's where the new proposed Banshee Horn Open link in a new window comes in. The 135 dB horn (135 dB, that's very loud) doesn't play at full blast when tapped. If you press it for less that 1/2 second, it'll will sound "normally". Press it longer, and people around you will have ear perforations. You'll be sure you are heard.

On top of that, when sounding the 135 dB horn, your high beam lights will start flashing. So you're heard and seen at the same time. Excellent when that SUV starts cutting you off in the busy traffic. Before you know it, you're riding on your own...

The maker of the horn hasn't started producing it yet. He needs to finance the project, and is looking for pledges. He needs $12,000 to start the project. He's getting there, but a little support from you can go very far.

So if you think this is an excellent idea, go over to the web site and pledge some money. It might just save your life. The horn by the way works on cars and boats as well.

Have a look at the video below:
