This idea has been made real
Media artist, curator and musician/composer. I work with electronics, food, wild plants, land, open source and ideas around economics. Also I'm director of arts & innovation at Access Space, Sheffield.
Access Space is an arts and education charity with a maker space called Refab Space (which we opened in 2012). We're based in central Sheffield, close to the rail and bus stations.
People interested in art, design, computers, recycling, music, electronics, photography and more, meet like-minded people, share and develop skills and work on creative, enterprising and technical projects. The makers for this challenge are John Moseley, Toni Buckby, Gareth Coleman, Jake Harries and Martyn Eggelton.
I am an artist working with textiles and interactive media. I run workshops on digital fabrication at Access Space (Sheffield) and spend most of my time attempting to get impractical ideas to function.
The wild music hairdryer really sings as you dry your hair! It was brought to life by the people at Access space in Sheffield.
They said, 'We thought this was a great idea! With wings and feet too, a musical hair dyer just had to be disco! We like to imagine the Bee Gees drying their big hair in 1976 with this before heading out for a night of crazy dancing'.

We had a lot of fun on 30th May when we had the Little Inventors Day at Access Space. Here are a few comments from one of the makers!
What our experts think!
I love it because I don’t think it is possible to listen to too much music. So the boring minutes spent drying hair seems like the perfect time to catch up with the latest Kaiser Chiefs single.
I have to dry my hair very early in the morning for work and I hate how loud it is. I would love it if it played music instead. I think my neighbours would be happier too, especially if you could choose the music. Something calming in the morning and then some cheesy pop when I'm getting ready for a party! Cracking idea.
