Incoming Emails Play the Beatles “Hey Jude” on a Vintage Music Box

Description

“Email Music Box” connects a vintage wind-up music box to the Internet. Every time an email is received, the song “Hey Jude” by the Beatles is played on the music box. The song, originally written to comfort Julian Lennon during his parent’s divorce, comes around full swing to comfort aging electronics platforms on their imminent demise by scalable and module platforms like LittleBits and Arduino.
