Behold: A circuit board that turns an eggplant into a synthesizer

The Ototo is almost too adorable. So adorable that it only qualifies for our late Friday afternoon post, because what’s better at the end of a long week than watching a circuit board turn almost anything into a synthesizer. And by anything, we mean anything: hoodies, coffee, house plants, cats. (Yup, I’m pulling these from my immediate vicinity for these.) All that and the rest of my house can become a musical object that responds to your touch. You can read on the Kickstarter page about the technical stuff, but the gist is that the sound is affected by the shape of whatever the device is hooked up to. Hmm, I wonder which cat thumps best.
