Otamatone – weird Pacman instrument sounds like a tone deaf cat fight


This Otamatone is supposed to be an ‘entertaining’ musical instrument from Japan, but judging from the videos it’s really nothing more than an excuse for people to produce tone-deaf music without the…ah…music bit. £24.99 buys you some wall banging from the upset neighbours.

 To create a wah-wah-ish vibrato simply squeeze Otamatone’s rubbery head and watch in incredulity as its mouth opens and closes and the notes begin to quiver. The whole hatstand process is a bit like playing a windless Martian bagpipe. In fact it makes rival nutjob instruments seem positively normal.
