A Room With Potential

foil circuit piano babyWhen I saw the piano covered in foil, and circuit boards fanned out like a deck of cards, I knew the room had potential.  The babies’ heads on bamboo sticks were a nice touch, but it was the foil and circuit boards that turned my head inside the Deeble House a few weeks ago.  We drove 4 hours west to Lucas, KS, to explore “The Grassroots Capital of Kansas” with Steve and Diane recently.  We saw sights like the Deeble House, The Garden of Eden, and the coolest public bathroom I’ve ever used.  Lucas is also the home to The World’s Largest Collection of the World’s Smallest Versions of the World’s Largest Things.  That collection has scaled down replicas of the Eiffel Tower, Cadillac Ranch, Carhenge, and many other items.  Anyway back to the foil covered piano in the Deeble House– I told the tour guide that I have the technology to hook wires up to the foil and actually play the house the same way I play vegetables on Beep Goes the Weasel.  She showed interest and we exchanged contact information, and who knows?  Four people on four walls might be playing Smoke On The Water in western Kansas someday!

  1. Sounds like a fun and interesting day trip. Jim & I need to do that more often.
    When you hook up that piano will it all light up? Now that would really be cool.
