Often the music doesn't match up to the moments of the drive – whether it's the chorus kicking in when you hit the accelerator or steady beats breaking up the monotony of the motorway. 

Now, a solution has come from an unlikely source – will.i.am, the entrepreneur and musician best known as the founder of the Black Eyed Peas 

The technology, known as Sound Drive, allows music to react to the way the car is being driven, turning it into a virtual musical instrument 

The musician – also known in the UK for appearances on ITV show The Voice – presented his technology at CES 2024, the electronics tradeshow in Las Vegas this week. 

Sound Drive enhances driving and sound technology, letting motorists reshape music just by driving.

Although the software is yet to be released to the public, Sound Drive would be available on the infotainment system of multiple Mercedes Benz cars
