Designer Develops a Musical Floor for Airports Wheel your suitcase, hear the music

Frequent travelers and fans of public art (now there's a fun Venn diagram slice) owe industrial designer Jeriël Bobbe some gratitude, because he has designed a musical floor for airports and, one would assume, train stations as well. The floor is made from pieces of ribbed wood that sound out different musical tones when a suitcase is dragged over them. The distance between the grooves determines pitch, and the depth of the ruts determines volume. It's a pretty cool idea—all the fun of the piano scene from Big (or Volkswagen's music stairs) without the risk of stuff like this happening to it.
