The Ototo is a 12-key synthesizer equipped with connectors. Plug in any conductive material, be it a vegetable, a bowl of water or a human being, and Ototo will turn it into a playable musical instrument. Four sensor inputs control the pitch, loudness and texture of the sound to give you total control of the music you make.
Designed in part by Yuri Suzuki, who brought us the Disney microphone that transmits audio messages via touch straight into a person’s ear, Ototo has just launched its Kickstarter campaign and has already 76 backers. Learn more about the synth in the video below, or pledge to it on Kickstarter.
