An electronically enhanced sewing machine [soundsbutter.com], able to represent sound through the height of the stitches it creates. The resulting stitch pattern thus becomes visually similar to an equalizer timeline. Unfortunately, currently a non-working prototype only.

Okay, I'm a seamstress that digitizes embroidery designs for computerized machines, and have also done DJ work. With those things as a huge part of my life, I still see no practical use or purpose for this machine. Sure, I think it's neat, but it is also a stupid waste of time, energy, and money. Why not put all three to better use and go volunteer to feed the homeless or something?

Deirdre, you must feel very sad and frustrated with your life to spend time hating on other people's work. Try to build your self-esteem through your own work and by supporting others in their own.

I agree with Deidre actually; it's an interesting concept but utterly wasteful. An entire sewing machine dedicated to this? How much expensive, bulky stuff do we all need to buy, really? The next few generations are going to be cleaning up our extensive messes thanks to our love of quirky, ultra-specific doodads. We ought to keep that in mind even with design.
