The Fotoplayer
 
This put a smile on my face http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyUa9q-p19c

From the website of the guy who restored it. http://www.rinaudosreproductions.com...otoplayer.html

The fotoplayer (“foto” from photoplay and “player” from player piano) is a wonderful contraption that was built to provide music and sound effects for silent movies. These machines appeared around 1912 and were used in medium sized theaters. Fotoplayers were in expensive to operate because you didn’t have to be a musician to play them as they were also playable by way of player piano rolls.
