The guys in the adjacent apartment have noisy all-night parties, and don’t invite me. So, I want to operate a soothing set of chimes, with an intensity to follow the boom-boom ebb & tide of their stereo. There are “shock sensor” transducers, that output a signal based on vibration, which goes to an amplifier. Hook that to an electromagnet, and have a small magnet on the flapper hangy-down-thingy (technical jargon) of a wind chime. Instant indoor ruckus-powered bliss. Adjust the sensitivity to your desired enlightenment level.

       I know someone who desperately needs this. Can you get it built in a jif?

       Yeah, but he's going to move soon.   

       "Ruckus-powered Bliss?" Heh.

       The Zen way is to not react to their all-night party and likewise, not restrain your noisy kids from getting up early and making lots of noise right outside their apartment.

       A Zen chainsaw? Mmmm.

       Ah, retaliation. These are all fine suggestions, but my special psychological paybacks drive the neighbors completely mad. Mad, I tell you.
This idea is instead about clearing the whole problem from one's mind, until all the other neighbors rise up and deal with it for me.
