3D-Printed Music Box Plays Customer-Composed Songs
The medieval device gets a modern makeover.
Left Field Labs is a digital creative agency that focuses on bringing technology into harmony with the human experience. Previous projects include Google Now, a predictive app that manages your day for you, and Zeitgeist Resolutions, an experience via Google Maps for users to share their resolutions with a worldwide community.
Their latest endeavor, Music Drop, is a modern take on the hand-cranked music box. The team explains, “since the 18th century, people have embraced the charm of the music box – a compact music player originally built on the mechanics and tradition of artisan watchmaking. We wanted to create a modern day adaptation to put tech and cheer right in your hand.”
