Chumby goes old time with the Chumbophone

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on December 7th, 2009

Chumby goes old time with the ChumbophoneWe all know how versatile Chumby is. This old time gadget above was created with a set of Chumby Guts, an old clock and some brass horns, along with a Dremel by Etsy member AbrahamBook.

It’s a WiFi-enabled Chumby lovingly shoved into a vintage steampunk-styled enclosure. We’re guessing that the Chumbophone doesn’t actually make calls using the horns, but we still dig it. What do you think? Ready to hit the antique store and start modding?
