Maim that tune! Agency solution if you can't stand co-workers' music

Fed up with your fellow workers' taste in music? This might be just the answer! It's even drawn the approving attention of Adweek across the Atlantic .

The "Change the Tune" poster, was invented by Michael Robinson of London creative shop Agency Republic in Battersea.

The agency plays music via Spotify over the office sound system, so Michael rigged up a poster with a motion sensor that changes the song when it's struck by something—like something you've thrown at it.

Comments Adweek, "While having the music change every 30 seconds can't be good for one's concentration, it's probably good for morale if employees throw stuff at the wall instead of each other. "

There's even a how-to guide in the video so that you can instal your own poster. It's maybe even appropriate that this great idea comes out of Battersea

I once worked in a fish and chip shop where the only CD we had was the damn 'The Big Chill' soundtrack and it was played all day. It was so demotivating we wouldn't have even had the strength to throw dim sims at it. Did manage to deep fry the CD in batter on my last day. @shutupgracey
