'Sound Bottle' captures audio, automates the remix


Re: Sound Bottle is a music creation device like no other. Designed by a student at Japan's Tama Art University, it's a bottle-shaped device that captures and plays back sounds. Operation seems startlingly simple: to record a sound, you simply uncork the bottle and, so long as noise is detected, it'll record and store the sounds as a sample. After capturing various samples, you simply uncork the bottle in a quiet environment and it will automatically generate a musical mashup. Unfortunately, it's just a prototype, and its creator Jun Fujiwara hasn't revealed any plans to develop it further, but you can see it in action in the video below.
