Turn a Vegetable, or Any Other Object, Into a Synthesizer

January 31, 2014 | Andy Cush

The Ototo, a DIY synth kit currently funding on Kickstarter, promises to turn any conductive object into a keyboard. Just plug an alligator clip into Ototo on one end and an eggplant on the other, and touching the veggie produces sweet, sweet synthy vibes.

Watch the Ototo pitch video below.

There’s all kinds of customization options as well. Read more here, and, if you’re interested, pony up a donation on Kickstarter.
