WineGong – Might be your next doorbell


Is this doorbell classy or nerdy? We can’t decide. Part of us digs the natural material and wine glasses, but then, it is a DIY project that involves gong’n two flutes all controled by a homebuilt circuit board.

 The setup is quite easy:

– The two glasses (Butlers) are srewed to a wooden board (OBI)
– The servo (Conrad) is attached to the board via angle brackets (OBI) by tie wraps
– The wooden spoon (Ikea) is attached to the servo by tie wraps
– The board has two colored LEDs attached to the glasses fixated by hot-melt adhesive

Think we’re going with nerdy. Yeah, definitely a nerdy doorbell.
