(Girly squeal) These things are the cutest things ever! Having a major shut up and take my money moment.


The holidays might be over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself to a little gift. And as my roommate reminded me yesterday, Valentine’s Day is only a month away (eye roll), so you can instead opt to drop (not so subtle) hints to your significant other. Either/or. I’m not judging either way. Point is, you’re going to want this adorable 3D-printed music box. BECAUSE IT’S SO COOL!

Honestly, I have an obsession with music boxes. I blame my grandmother. However, personalized 3D-printed music boxes are on a whole ‘nother level.


An online service called Music Drop lets users compose their own 16-note tune which is then 3-D printed with a custom hand-cranked music box.

Check out the interface below, and don’t even think about stealing my awesome name:

To create your musical composition, simply click the dots on the grid and you’ll be able to hear what exactly you’ve made, whether it’s brilliant or horrific. When you’ve completed your tune and chosen your color, you can either share it in an online gallery or you can send it to Left Field Labs for the 3D printing. Right now, they’ll ship it to you at no charge.
