Jin-Yo Mok's and Gicheol Lee's MusicBox is a sound instrument that
integrates an installation with interactions over the Internet. The
physical installation consists of an old-fashioned music box with a
crank handle, in which the pins have been replaced with LEDs and the
notes with photo sensors for user interaction.
Users can draw a shape and pattern on the screen with their mouse and
the same pattern of LEDs will light up on the physical music box.
Turning the crank handle on the LED cylinder, any sensors that detect
light from the LEDs will make a sound. Data submitted by users is
stored in a database and shared by the online and offline music box.
