We've Been Stuck With Violins for Centuries

Given how many hours I spent with a crappy Casio keyboard, I’m pretty sure 12-year-old Robin would never have come out of his room if he’d had one of these.

What’s cool about it is not the synthesis (which is kinda boring), and even not the interface per se, but rather the interface in a physical context — all those buttons! How can you not want to monkey with it?

I’ve never seen one of these contraptions before, but I agree. I totally would have played with it if I had one as a kid.

I used to love playing with my zither as a kid: The one featured in this video looks complicated, but there are some kid-friendly ones that anybody can play.
