Sometimes the music around you just doesn’t fit your mood. The Jukebox Hero designed by Zach Glueckert, Kevin Wills and Ross Bulkley may solve that problem. It can operate as a normal Jukebox with individual songs available. It can also operate on “mood” mode. The gadget uses sensors to identify temperature, light and sound in order to detect environmental mood. The Jukebox sensors can determine eight individual moods and each mood is tied to predetermined CD tracks. So, as the lights go down and the joint gets quiet, you’ll soon hear Frank Sinatra croon, “In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning.” That is, unless the Jukebox operator has intentionally programmed the Clash to disrupt quiet moments at a party.
