Remember the hit toy the Furby? It was the first successfully domestically-aimed robot that sold well because all the kids just had to have it. But, just like the Tickle-Me Elmo or any other Christmas time fad, it died off and everyone forgot about it. That is, until David Cranmer skinned a few of them and turned them into a musical instrument that takes no skill to play unlike the Stylophone.
Using four Furbies, David managed to craft some intricate music boxes that wind up to release a kicking tune that proves Furbies are more useful and fun when they’re skinned and mounted. One is even being sold on eBay for a little over $700. If you check out the effort that has gone into making this musical box, you’d know that that price is not steep.
