You know when you are having a quiet conversation in your
cafe and suddenly someone next to you decides to pull or push
chair out and there is an awful noise caused by the metal tips of
chair legs vibrating against the concrete of the floor and
in the structure
of the chair? You won't come down for a couple of
hours, every nerve ending in your body, standing at attention.
With chair bell, each leg has a hollow end, inside of which a
fork is positioned so that the tips of the tuning fork will vibrate
resonantly against the specially surfaced floor like a cello bow
across a horse hair string and then ring.
Maybe the whole structure of the chair is a resonant cavity filled
with viola de amore-like resonant strings.
No more conversation interruption.

||Is that why hot tubs are so relaxing ? There are no chairs in sight.
||No more conversation interruption, until all body parts are boiled red.
||JHC would you please produce a video featuring your earnest table companion discussing a matter of great import to hem/r and you punctuating this earnestness with periodic small slides of above described chair (not the modified one; the real, awful one) which become longer and louder as s/he becomes more animated and earnest.
