The Stupid Orchestra is a ragtag band of about 200 household appliances trying to approximate music with their clicks and clacks. Michael Petermann, who really is a trained orchestra conductor and choirmaster, created and conducted the proceedings of The Stupid Orchestra. Most of the appliances used were manufactured between 1940 and 1975, and were chosen because Petermann wanted each part of the orchestra to have a distinct sound.

Mobile phone designer Mobiado and luxury car maker Aston Martin have teamed up to create a brand new luxury mobile phone. The CPT002 concept phone is a lot of glass and appears transparent. The capacitive touchscreen can go opaque when required, providing easy access to the phone’s functions. CPT002 comes packed with numerous features, and can of course, also be the key to your Aston. It will be officially unveiled at BaselWorld 2011. An interesting phone, but not quite as attractive as you’d expect an Aston branded phone to be.
