A thin wooden insert moves loosely within a cutout gutter of a wooden board and makes a soft rattling sound.

The latitude and longitude geocoding where my family’s house was once located is softly imprinted on the wooden insert.
This item is not as functional as a smartphone, but I hope that users can carry it around in their bags or pockets and sometimes take it out, shake it and enjoy the sound it makes.
