Snorechestra   (+17)  [vote for, against]
a cacophony of music and bird calls

(inspired by my significant other)

The snorechestra is a unit built like an oxygen mask that straps onto one’s face. There is a metal ring with several musical instruments and birdcalls attached. Flutes, kazoos, harmonicas and several birdcalls are lined up around the metal ring. When it’s strapped onto the face of the snoring ‘victim’, or participant, the instruments will all be played simultaneously as the breath is expelled. This gives the listener something else to hear, or will possibly wake up the sleeper, in which case the concert has ended.

pssst, Don't tell my wife but We need this.

My wife already knows that we need this.

So, this is strapped on after the snoring commences? I'd think it would have to be that way, otherwise the cacaphony would prevent me, er, a person from sleeping/snoring to begin with.

A minor detail: why is it active when breath is expelled? I think I snore on the intake stroke. Wouldn't you want to cover that up instead of making the possibly quiet exhaust stroke noisy as well? Or is the goal to even out the noise, to make it more constant?

hhmmmm, I'm not a professional snorer, so I don't know the answer to your questions. I was thinking that my snoring person made more noise on the exhale, but now I think you are correct. It's a good thing that I didn't add the bubble blowing attachment, as they would suck in all that soap!

Well, I can't really be sure either, as I'm usually asleep at the time...sort of. I'm off to begin the process of dealing with obstructive sleep apnea later this week. I am so tired of being tired.

[half] I'm sorry to hear about the sleep apnea. I've heard that can be dangerous, besides not getting enough sleep. I'm thankful that we have the 'bakery to help us in other ways to escape our personal reality problems. Wishing you the best of luck.

Baked, by Arty Ziff, in The Simpsons.

[RockCrawler] Can you provide a link for the bakedness? I can only find that he created 'modem music'. Thanks.

Say [xandram], how about you attach one of those fantastic whibbles to the mask?
What do you mean you don't know what The Whibble is? Why, it is the best whistle-soap bubble contraption available. Pure genius.
-- methinksnot, May 03 2006

That sounds like a plan [mtn]. This Whibble seems to fit extremely well into the scheme of things.

I was thinking you would have an actual orchestra around this concept. +
-- sartep, May 04 2006

hmm, in a dorm or other place with more than one snoring person, there can be several versions all with different items attached. Then we can have an orchestra.**

**need something to keep a beat....snore drum?
