Feel the shiver of excitement?

Volkswagen is aiming to pass on the message “Feel the shiver of excitement?” while advertising their cars which come with in-trend geeky features like Navigation system with rear-view camera, multifunction steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity support and more. This is a great way to garner attention of the customers by physically attaching a motor which sets off automatically, thanks to the simple light sensor on top. Unsuspecting readers will be taken aback for a while and that will ensure they sit back and read through to know what’s happening. It looks like Volkswagen is using a PhotoDiode, which is a type of photodetector capable of converting light into either current or voltage, depending upon the mode of operation. The light-sensitive vibrator weighs no more than 10-15 grams and continuously vibrates to pass on the excitement. If you haven’t got a chance to see how it works, here is a short video I took this morning.
