If you have $23, 500, that is. HODINKEE have created the spaceship Music Machine 2 (I added the spaceship, because, well, it is a spaceship), and it’s one of the most beautiful things you’ll see this week.
According to the guys at HODINKEE:
“…it’s arguably the most advanced, most technically impressive, and detail obsessed mechanical music box in the world, and ours, in gunmetal grey, is the most limited in production.”
Looking at the Music Machine 2, well, one can’t argue.
Watch it in more detail.
Aside from being an impressive-looking thing, the spaceship Music Machine 2 actually is a music machine, and it plays songs!
It plays six songs, three on each of two cylinders: On one we have Star Wars, Star Trek, and The Empire Strikes Back. On the other, we have Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven, The Rolling Stones’ Angie, and the Clash’s Should I Stay Or Should I Go?
It may only be six songs, but those six should be enough to get you going any time. Waking up on the wrong side of the bed, heartbreak, job loss – not a problem. This playlist will improve your mood any time.
The bad thing: I think they’ve sold out, but one can drool from a distance, can one not?
