Brit Leissler’s Octopulse Instrument

July 22, 2008 at 11:22 am (amazing things, music, neat things) ()

Well, this is amazing. One Brit Leissler is responsible for an instrument called Octopulse: a soft, cuddly octopus, with sensors in its “tonetacles” that connect directly to an analog synthesizer. Play with the octopus, create music (or something like it).

The goal is to make music-makers out of the average music-appreciater (i.e. everyone), by converting cold, unapproachable technology in an inviting friend. What an interesting project — I would love to play with one. Go watch this video to learn more, and see it in action.
