Musical Bottles: Beck's Will Play You A Beer

As if the light bulb wasn't enough of a contribution, Thomas Edison also invented the first form of recorded music in the late 19th century, around the same time Beck's started brewing beer. Edison's device, a foil-lined cylinder that led to the phonograph (old word for "record player") looked remarkably like a beer bottle without the neck. So naturally, engineers at Auckland, New Zealand firm Gyro Constructivists created the technology to make it sing as part of Beck's new Record Label project. Folks, beer can do anything.

By utilizing a unique form of engraving and a specially developed playback device, one dedicated team and Auckland indie rock band Ghost Wave transformed an ordinary beer bottle into the whole party.
