Acoustic Laptops

An artist named Origami Boe apparently makes these Acoustic Laptops, like the one pictured just above. They're basically small wooden boxes outfitted with all kinds of acoustic noisemaking doodads and gadgets. He performs sound installations with them and also sells his boxes to interested parties. My brother Zack and I have lately been brainstorming ideas for unique artisan mobiles we could make that would incorporate perpetual motion, magnified light, prisms, moving shadows, etc to create hand cranked off-the-grid analog light shows. I'm starting to think it would be sweet to have one of these Acoustic Laptops as well. That way we could start having experimental acoustic audiovisual lullaby jam sessions each night at my son Amos' bedtime.
