200 household appliances come together, play music



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.

Steampunk computer mouse eats off the brain

Steampunk computer mouse eats off the brain


This brass Steampunk mouse will likely have Dr. Frankenstein clap his hands in glee. The optical mouse has a glass cylinder housing a brain with electrodes poking out of it and an oversized click-wheel to go along. Creating this Steampunk mouse, Peter Balch started with a normal optical mouse, stripped it down to the circuit board and then added Victorian-age touches, LEDs and the brain.

Mobiado shows transparent mobile phone concept for Aston Martin

Mobiado shows transparent mobile phone concept for Aston Martin


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.
