“They saw their injured country's woe;
The flaming town, the wasted field;
Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, - but left the shield.”
Interesting, but hardly "new." Sort of a cross between the musical automata of the eighteenth century (for which Mozart composed on commission!) and a Rube Goldberg invention.I was a bit surprised in this age of Super-Automation and increasing Robotization that so much active physical participation on the part of a knowledgeable human being is required to make the machine work.
Very cool.@FT - It's more "music box" than instrument.
