Musical doorbells are annoying enough, but what if you gave your visitors the freedom to express themselves creatively?

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. [Labexp via Freshome]
