DIY Music Box

Most of us will know of music boxes as pleasant pieces of home decorative items that tinkle the day away while you take a break from all the rigors of the office. Folks who have a penchant for something different might be interested in the DIY Music Box that is capable of accepting any punched paper “score”.

This is the ‘big brother’ version of the Music Box Set. It has 20 notes instead of 15, so it can play 2.5 octaves. As a music box, it is quite a bit bigger, at 14.5 x 7 x 2.75cm high. Again, like the smaller music box, it just plays the white notes, and does not play sharps or flats. Included is the Music Box, one pre-punched strip which plays Romeo and Juliet, 2 blank strips, and a hole punch, so that you can create your own tunes! The strips are 66cm x 7cm.

You can pick up this alternative music box for £15.99.

RC Floor Sweeper

Inject some fun into your house chores with the RC Floor Sweeper - a device that is guaranteed to get the kids scampering after you, asking for dibs on getting the floor cleaned. The reason is simple - one end of an electrostatic dust mop has been connected to an RC car, letting you clean your room in record time without having to walk around (at least until the range between the remote control and car is too far apart). This will take care of minor dust bunnies and all, but it won’t do nuts for stains on the floor. Other drawbacks include not burning any more calories and you’re polluting the environment with more batteries.

Interesting use of a tree stump

What happens when you chance upon a tree stump? Well, I’m pretty sure that’s a weird question to ask as most of us will just walk by without giving it much further thought. Somebody else went the extra mile, however, coming with a brilliant idea to make use of old tree stumps. Instead of removing it (and hence taking up a whole lot of time and incurring costs for the local municipal council), you can always use a chainsaw to turn it into a refreshing cooler. Carve yourself a hole in the middle, place a heavy duty garbage bag, fill it up with ice and throw in your favorite cans of lager and you’re good to go.
