Please note, this is a serious article, not a joke. If you read the headline, "Vehicle Approach Notification Control Apparatus", you might think we're talking about a horn. But we're not, at least, not really. Or maybe we should be...

The patent was filed last year 27 September, and is meant to stop pedestrians having a heart attack when an electric motorcycle rides up to them. We all know the problem with electric bikes, they are almost noiseless, so an unexpecting pedestrian might just wander off onto the road and get hit by one.

Patent Noise Machine Electric Motorcycles

This patent wants to emulate an engine sound, the actual sound will depend of the c.c. equivalent of the electric engine, and play it back when riding. More clever than that, the sound will vary depending on the speed of the electric motorcycle. The sound will also vary if it is raining, or if it has become night. So the device is full of sensors to play a sound of a combustion engine.

Personally, I prefer the Domino Pizzas Open link in a new window way. Or just blow the horn. Reading the patent is incredibly difficult, since it looks like a team of lawyers have written it, independently from each other.
