As most guys I don't tell my wife that "I love you" as often as I should, but this little gadget will at least improve that situation as bit.
So by combining a nice box and some hardcore electronics nerdiness I've made a nice christmas gift for my wife. The LoveBox is a small box that when opened displays a random message of love to the viewer.
Love might be what makes the world go around - or was that money?
So in order to get the world spinning the LoveBox can be changed into a DecisionBox by altering the software to give a random answer of "YES", "NO" and once in a while even an "MAYBE" when the box is opened. That's the perfect gift for the undecided decision maker. ;-)
For gamblers the box could be adapted to show lotto numbers when opened.
The possibilities are endless as most people needs to be told something or make decisions....
