Ever wondered what solar power sounds like? So did Rory Nugent, until he designed a solar powered xylophone. Fitted with solar cells for each mallet, the xylophone will play a different note depending on the position of the sun, and the amount of power that the cells have absorbed. This environmental musical instrument is just the beginning for Rory, because he plans to expand on this xylophone and design it to be a perfect outdoor companion that turns to follow the rays of the sun. Watch a video of the music that can be made after the cut.

Pretty cool, or a glamourized set of wind-chimes?
