Sharpsicord like a giant music box


Henry Dagg made this giant metallic instrument, called the sharpsicord. A combination of music box and harp, you can program sounds into it by sticking pins into a giant metal drum. When the crank is turned, the barrels spins, and the pins cause individual strings to play. [via neatorama]
