Who would have thought a single octave ribbon controller could be so chearful? Maywa Denki apparently. He is the creator of the Otamatone, a musical oddity from Japan. At Alexious.com a mere $35.39 (approximately) will buy “the world’s cutest, weirdest musical instrument” in your choice of color. Personally I have seen many much weirder, but few cuter. I have yet to decide if that is a good thing or not. Watch the video below and decide for yourself.
Ok, I’ve decided. Maywa Denki is awesome. Check out his other music and art projects at maywadenki.com.
