Weird barrel music device

I’m at IFTF’s Future of Making conference, and got to chat with Hideo Tamura, editor of the Japanese edition of Make Magazine.   Make: Japan is a selection from the US Make plus some original Japanese content.  He showed me a bunch of videos from the recent Maker Faire in Japan, including this weird barrel input device for making music.


Babelfish’s attempt at translating: “You can adjust also volume with the strength which pushes. It is the truly rational musical instrument.”


One thought on “Weird barrel music device”

  1. Speaking of weird musical instruments: Did you see the guy from in the steam punk area? He had some sort of a cool theremin.
