Andante is a coin operated in stand walking metronome consisting of two legs. After inserting a coin, the machine starts to march for exactly 120 seconds in stand. On the bottom of the heel a piezo element is mounted to amplified the steps and instantly plays them back with loudspeakers located in two shoes standing in front of he machine. This sound defines the beat and the tempo. But the two legs are slightly inconsistent and getting asynchronous in their speed, hence one leg is one pace faster then the other leg. This results in an imperfect metronome!
Andante is a coin operated in stand walking metronome and part of "our-first-audible-profitable-economy-exhibition".
