This is certainly a new application of the cuckoo clock. Cuckoo IP was created by a college student who wanted his cuckoo clock to play back voicemail to him. The clock has a designated voicemail number you can call from anywhere and leave a message. You then give the message a time of delivery and your part is done. Meanwhile, the clock is checking every minute to see if there is a new message. If a message has arrived, it retrieves it and at the time it's supposed to be delivered, the cuckoo will emerge from the clock and play back the voicemail. Super cool.
