That's no moon -- it's the MusicMachine 3, a state-of-the-art music box from designer Maximilian Busser, largely inspired by the TIE Fighter from Star Wars. It doesn't hook up to your iPhone, it can't stream Spotify and it doesn't have a USB input anywhere along its bulbous, spider-like chrome body. It does, however, play music. The MusicMachine 3 plays six songs via a roller lined with metal pins that catch on the teeth of a comb as they rotate. With these pins, Busser's latest music box plays the themes from Star Wars, Mission: Impossible, James Bond, The Godfather, The Persuaders and Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence. The MusicMachine 3 has 72 musical teeth in total and the entire piece is designed to amplify and enrich the sound of each note. Hear for yourself below.

This luxurious sculpture of melodic nerdery is part of a larger celebration, the tenth anniversary of Busser's horological design company, MB&F. The MusicMachine 3 is a limited-edition piece of art and sound, with just 99 produced in total (33 each in white, black and chrome finishes). It costs roughly $18,400 (CHF 17,500) plus tax, Hodinkee reports.
