Ningen Gakki turns your body into an instrument

We as humans have a weird sort of fascination with what music we can make and the different ways in which we can do so. What if you could turn your body into a drum set or a violin? The Ningen Gakki is a little robot that has four electrodes that through electrical currents, can turn your body into an instrument by means of touch. Thatís right, touch your skin in different places and you can play music like never before.

There are several modes for this neat little bot, which include performance mode which will play a pre-programmed song note by note via touch, and drum mode which will change sound when you hit different parts of the body. Hitting yourself harder is not going to make the sound louder, so donít punch each other if you get it. It costs about $40, but seems like a really fun party game
