It's really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them.

|My Wind Chime is Smarter than Yours||5:23 AM|
Ah wind chimes. They can be so relaxing or excruciatingly irritating. It wouldn’t be so bad if they served a functional purpose but thanks to some innovative Korean designers, tomorrow’s wind chimes will ring for a purpose. It’s called Tinkling, an slick ultra-modern wind chime that rings whenever you receive a digital message (email, voicemail, text).
The idea is quite simple. Nobody wants to stand around their computer all day waiting for would be important messages. RELAX, kick off your shoes and go enjoy a glass of wine on your balcony or deck. Whenever you do receive a message, the Tinkling rings, its blowing tail changes color, and a message is displayed across the embedded screen.
