Personal Theme

Enter a room to your personal theme tune!

A small broatch, for women, a rugged watch for men, able to play a 5 second mp3 that is your theme tune. Enter a room and hit your watch and away you go, dum de de de dum dum dum, you can have an entry and exit song if you so wish!

       I think it would be better if the sound were coming from the room's sound system, with the brooch simply sending it the theme song via some wireless protocol. Not only is the room likely to have better speakers than your watch, but this system would allow the room to, for example, segue from one theme to another when multiple people enter.

       baf, not all rooms have sound systems, and sometimes you might not want anyone to see you slip in. Although, the wirless system would be good to 'download' your theme if you feel like a change.

       I like baf's extension to this idea. The owner of the room would effectively decide whether or not fanfares are in operation, and a setting on your watch (the off button) could allow you to slip in unnoticed.

       I think some offices would get very tired of this very quickly. Also, what if someone else picked your favorite theme song as well? There'd have to be a major ass-whuppin' if that happened.   

       PS, baf had the spelling right in this case. It's 'brooch'.

       Simply get yourself elected President tomorrow, and you'll hear "Hail to the Chief" every time you enter.
