Imagine: I am working in a fairly ordinary office setting doing my job. I am, however, wearing a small computer which is wired to sensors which can detect the postition of my hands, feet, elbows, etc., and thus react to my gestures or body position. What the computer does is when is detects certain gestures or positions it plays certain sounds. So when I drink something it plays a "Glug, glug, glug" sound; If I hit something, a "boof!" sound; As I walk down the corridor, loud echoey footsteps; As I stand up from a seated position, the sounds of joints popping and creaking. And so on...

       Cute, but I want the cubicle as far away from you as possible.

       I feel like this would quickly get old, even if you could change the sound pallette.. Also, you'd need to rig something much less obvious; pretty soon you'd be able to tell who led a very boring life..

       Robin Williams wore a working version of this in the movie "Toys." it worked quite well in annoying the people he was seeking to annoy. I also liked his "Smoking Jacket." =)

       As you are called into the boss's office, the funeral march plays...   

       I see this having potential for comedic value as well as artistic.

       ‘Flabboink!’ (tosses keyboard aside in disgust.) ‘Spinggg!’ (Head swivels round to see co-worker in doorway) ‘Fwapp!’ (co-worker delivers swift flathand to soundeffect-artists cheek). ‘Fweeeeep!’ (soundeffect-artist’s ego deflates)
