Forget the Boring Doorbell, here is the Pianobell

The Pianobell is an innovative approach to the old doorbell by Li Jian. As you can see from the picture attached bellow the Pianobell was inspired by a piano. This concept is great because it allows your visitors to perform a short piece of music on this small “instrument”, and is something that you’ve never saw before. icon smile Forget the Boring Doorbell, here is the PianobellVia

    Zach – As I wrote in this post, this is just an idea, a concept for now unfortunately, but who knows maybe you have a friend who is electrician, and likes to make DIY projects.

    That is totally a commerical idea – how cool would that be? I’d be so annoying on Halloween though :-)

    I think the idea here is to tell your regular frinds thier own special “song” to play when they come, so you know it’s them. Kind of like Caller ID for your doorbell. Great! Where and when can I buy one?

    [...] Posted by Jo Musical doorbells are annoying enough, but what if you gave your visitors the freedom to express themselves creatively? That’s exactly what designer Li Jian had in mind when he came up with the Pianobell. Unless you are friends with a lot of talented musicians, I don’t see much of an upside here. On the other hand, it could be amusing to torture your FedEx guy with a bizarre form of performance anxiety. Fortunately for him, the Pianobell is only a concept at this point.
