chick-a-dee smoke detector

While pretty much anyone can agree that smoke detectors aren't the most aesthetically pleasing home devices, the Chick-A-Dee hopes to change all that. Imagined by Dutch artist and designer Louis van der Veld and produced by The Initiator and Company, the bird-shaped Chick-A-Dee is smoke detector that takes it name and shape from the the American Black-capped Chickadee, replicating its "chick-a-dee-dee" warning call at the first sign of smoke, and increasing in volume as the smoke thickens.
