Musical Geek Toy - The Otamatone

5th November, 2009

And now for something a little different.

The Otamatone is branded as a “quirky musical instrument” - and it most definitely fits that description. It is some kind of mashup of a normal musical instrument, a Japanese toy (and we know how crazy they can be), and a theremin, producing a resulting tone that can only be described as “wailing”.

The video below of three Otamatones in action just has to be seen heard to be believed - if you like their style (or are getting jealous of your hungry cat) then head over to Amazon to pick yourself one up before Christmas.
