Geekbell

Now this is a doorbell! Over at ThinkGeek they have a USB doorbell.

The USB Doorbell replaces your current chime and allows you to play your favorite sound effects, music, audio clips, movie quotes or whatever strikes your fancy. Anytime someone presses that little button by your front door the USB Doorbell will "ring" using the sound you have selected. It first connects to your computer via USB (cable included) and will store any up-to-thirty second WAV or MP3 soundclip that you wish to use.

According to the article it works with standard low voltage doorbell systems, so it doesnít look like it would take a lot of tinkering. Here is a clip of it working in all of itís geeky action.

Yea, I may have to get one of these.

I might have to use the Sam Kinnison AHHH! AHHH! AHHHHHHHHH! scream as a sound effect.

Very cool gadget.

I was thinking more along the lines of Homer Simpson "MMMMmmmm Beer. (pouring sound) Yes, oh yes Woo Who!"

I'd probably get one that has the sound of electronics shorting out.
