A large xylophone for a wood cell phone

The only common point between this large xylophone and the mobile phone Touchwood SH-08C is that they are made of wood. :-)

The Japanese from Docomo have made this impressive ad for their wooden cell phone. This giant xylophone is made in the forest on a slope, a wooden ball is used to hit the notes. The length of each strip, V-shaped to keep the ball, have been calculated to play the right notes and good length.



You must have recognized «Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben» a famous cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach. So would you like a wood mobile phone? ;-)
