This paper describes three experimental prototypes that explore the embedding of sonifications in things. Through previous work with mobile sonifications we identified requirements for Òsonifications in the wildÓ as being embedded, expendable, and extendeable. Three prototypes, called Flotsam, Jetsam and Lagan, investigate technologies, sounds, materials and metaphors to define and illustrate the design space. The knowledge gained from these prototypes has led to the development of the open source Mozzi sonification library on the Arduino microprocessor
