This interesting project by French artist Stephane Vigny, is a combination of a cuckoo clock and a giant loud speaker. When the bass is loud, the largest speaker on the bottom is released on a hinge-mechanism and catapulted into the room, retreating back to the cabinet when the sound softens. Although we’re not sure if this increases the dance action of the space, it’s a cool idea to allow sound to exist as a kinetic object of sorts.

    French brigade here. This is not a regular cabinet with cuckoo-clock features, it’s more like a cuckoo-clock that looks like a cabinet. Actually, the three loudspeakers can pop out like the big one does on the pictures above, each one playing a “cuckoo” relative to its size (bass cuckoo, medium cuckoo, high-pitched cuckoo).

    I once wrote a little application that ran on a PC that worked like a cuckoo clock. Every hour it would play the appropriate number of cuckoos and open and close the drive tray the correct number of times! The system administrator at work told me he’d rip my arms off if I deployed it there.

    Sys-admins are known to do that.
