Built between 1958 and 1981, what kind of noise machine is Franz Gsellmann's Weltmaschine? This "World Machine" near Kaag Austria is a festive structure built of 2000 different shrining components all rotating, roaring and flashing.

This mechanical siren screams to life with 25 electric motors. Gsellmann's Weltmaschine seems to be getting louder with age. Hear it: HERE
