Otherwise known as, The Musical Condom.

Who wouldn't like to have one of these for Valentine's Day?!

Maybe some of you gearheads can explain the subtleties of this to me. Or at least, better appreciate the effort that Paul Lyons of Southbridge, Massachusetts put into it. Follow the link provided by the patent number to get the juicy details, or click here.

There's an interview with the inventor here.

I'd love to hear the Axiom faithful's favorite songs to upload to this bad boy. The mind boggles.

"Back in the Saddle"?
"Hurts So Good"?
The Theme from The Simpsons?

Right-click on it and view it in a separate window to see it full size. It's inflating itself.
