Analog Synthesizer SX-150 Mark II lets you make your own electronic dance party

Electronic music is both entrancing, and very difficult to make. While the purists who believe that classical music is the only “real” music (they do exist, and they’re quite serious), music like electronica has its own method to madness, and technical skill. If you’ve ever taken interest in this kind of music, and wanted to dabble in it, then playing with an analog synth might be fun.

Theremin Mini Kit lets you make music…with SCIENCE!

Learning how to play an instrument can be pretty difficult. Let’s say you pick a stringed instrument. Not only do you need to learn simple things like how to hold it, but also individual notes on each string, how to combine them, bowing techniques, and upkeep.  If you’d prefer an instrument that you don’t even have to touch, then do I have an instrument for you!

Moxie Showerhead brings singing in the shower to a whole new level

For whatever reason, listening to music while you’re taking a shower or bath makes things more peaceful and relaxing. When you take a bath, your only task is to be stationary, so it’s not hard to listen to your tunes. However, showers mean cranking up the volume since you will have to compete with the rushing water, and you’ll be putting a shower curtain between you and the sound source. Instead of trying to blow out your speakers, why not…

World’s Largest Toe Tap Piano has you dancing to the music

Music is timeless. It always has been, and it always will be. This audial method of entertainment has been around for years, and we always seem to find new approaches to how we create it. Different instruments, using our voices, or even found objects have crafted melodies that make us laugh, cry, or think about the world around us. If your little one expresses an interest in music, and you want to start teaching them an instrument without actually buying…

Shimi is a docking station that wants to be your dance partner

When you listen to one of your favorite songs, you probably start belting out the words or dancing along to the beat (or both). You know that if you heard the same song at an event or club with friends, you would probably have a smile plastered on your face. Grooving to the beat is always more fun when it’s more than just one person, but you’re not always going to have a friend at home to dance with you.

Sonic Walk makes sure you don’t miss a beat

When you’re out jogging, hiking, or biking, there’s a good chance you’re going to want to listen to some music. Not that any of those activities aren’t fun, but it’s easier to do a longer workout when you’re not as focused on the physical strain you’re experiencing. The only bad thing that comes with having earbuds in is that you aren’t as aware of your surroundings.

Cassette to iPod Converter is the modern day walkman

We’ve seen some converters that take a cassette and change it to a digital medium in the past. However, it stores the information on your computer, and then you have to put it onto your device to listen to it. If you are an iPod or iPhone user, then you will be pleased to know that you will be able to skip over that last step entirely.

iMusic Knitted Hat should be your winter headphones

It’s not even fall yet, but all we have to do is blink and it’s going to be winter again. Frost-bitten fingers and bundling up in coats that look like marshmallows will be upon us before we know it. Whether rain, shine, or snow, we’re still going to be listening to our music, and cringe every time we put ice cold earbuds in.

Ontama lets you jam out while getting squeaky clean

While I can appreciate silence every now and then, there are some days where I want music on, constantly. Whether it be in the car, sitting in class, or studying, it’s nice to listen to a little background noise, or have something you can rock out to. However, technology doesn’t mix well with water, and if your smartphone is your main source of tunes, you could be in trouble when you’re bathing.

Tunescicles gives you music playlist superpowers

As we’ve noted before, YouTube currently drives a good proportion of the Web’s music discovery, but up to now we haven’t seen much in the way of basic, down home jukebox functionality from the service. Yes you can set up channels, or use your favorites as a form of playlist manager, but neither of these options gives a really satisfactory result.

DanoSongs offers free music for your game, video or other projects [Freeware]

One of the great things about the Internet is the spirit of community that you find around the place. Everywhere you look there are folks happy to give stuff away, even if the stuff is their hard work made manifest. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the digital music sphere, where all sorts of genres are represented.

ION Water Rocker will give you music above and below your pool

Summer is a grand time to do a lot of nothing. All we want to do it chill out next to the pool, and relax with some of our favorite tunes. The only problem that you may face with this situation is needing to turn up the volume or skip a song you don’t particularly like while you’re dripping wet in the pool.

Satechi Bluetooth Multi-Media Remote Control makes convenience only a click away

We like things to be as seamlessly functional as possible. If we’re giving a presentation, we don’t want to have to walk over to the computer and push the next button. Should you want to take a picture with everyone in it with your phone, then you should be able to without having to ask one person to exclude themselves to tap the screen.
