Chill out

Check out the new musical gadget from Yamaha, the Tenori-On.

The creator of the Tenori-On, Japanese artist Toshio Iwai:

"In days gone by, a musical instrument had to have a beauty, of shape as well as of sound, and had to fit the player almost organically. [...] Modern electronic instruments don't have this inevitable relationship between the shape, the sound, and the player. What I have done is to try to bring back these [...] elements and build them in to a true musical instrument for the digital age."

It costs about $1,200.
