Oracle

A computer program generates random numbers between 1 and 66 digits long, converts them to words (i.e. 2512698 becomes two million, five-hundered and twelve thousand, six-hundred and ninety-eight). Text-to-speech software "speaks" the number through a small speaker embedded in the paper horn. After a pause of 60 seconds, another number is generated.
