Metronomerama

a metronome attachment that distributes incense

Metronomerama is a simple device that you attach to the end of the arm on a mechanical metronome.

The purpose of the new attachment is to act as a holder for an incense stick. Now when the metronome is activated, the trail of smoke emitted from the burning incense will be greatly enhanced, and make significant zig-zag patterns as it dissipates.

Because of the additional weight of the new attachment, the metronome will of course require a simple recalibration in order to continue to deliver an accurate timing beat. (full instructions provided)

Deluxe version takes the form of a grasping monkey's fist whose fold over digits hold the incense firmly in place.

       I'm all for increasing the waftyness of incense and other fragrant particulate vapours [+]

       This has the obvious risk of scattering burning fragments of material some distance from the device, which could easily result in a destructive fire.

       [+] I like this idea so much that I might make one. Should be pretty simple to attach an incense stick to the pendulum.   

       I’m surprised I can’t find one already online. Closest I found Is an electronic gizmo that waves an incense stick in sync with your heartbeat.

       Could this be done with a sparkler instead of an incense stick ?

       + yay, yes sparklers and some other dangerous exploding things!

       Isn't it going to speed up as the stick burns down?
