Well, sadly there’s little info besides the above seen pic of Yuri Suzuki’s long
barreled spouted musical kettle -
I wanted to contribute to the design of daily domestic noises. alarms, mobile phones, a doorbell; he is of the opinion that not enough thought has been given to the noises they produce. The musical kettle is a part of series ‘re-design soundscape’. As the kettle boils it whistles your favorite tune.
Wait, not only does it play music – it can somehow deduce what your favorite song is?! … Oh, s’pose that’s just a figure of speech (still … seems threatening!) Well that terminator/rifle look is likely due to it’s flute-like functionality – each hole capped with stealthy black solenoids.
Oh, almost forgot – yes, it does run on Arduino =]
