xkcd’s Tiniest Open-Source Violin IRL

If you’re an avid xkcd reader, you may recall that a few weeks back, there was a comic about a techy early adopter who had been laughed off over his web infrastructure concerns in 2003 responding to his erstwhile mocker’s Facebook privacy concerns by playing for him “the world’s tiniest open-source violin.” Well,¬†Erik de Bruijn has taken the concept literally, with an open-source design for a tiny, tiny (20 mm) violin, to be executed or tinkered with with at a 3D printer near you.
