Synthinetic: That Thing’S a Synthesizer?

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  February 28, 2010


At first glance at this ridiculous looking thing, I thought I was looking at some sort of wooden kids’ toy. But this oddball device is actually a synthesizer.

Created by Alex Abreu & Ithai Benjamin, the Synthinetic is simply described as “The little kinetic noisy synthesizer of your dreams.” Assuming your dreams include strange squeaky, bleepy noises, I suppose.

Sit back, turn up (or down) the volume and enjoy (or not)…

The Synthinetic was designed to operate solely on the energy generated by the user and the environment around them. Turning the knobs on the sides of the box stores up energy in a capacitor, which then powers the analog audio circuits. And sticking your finger in that furry hole at the top drains the synth of its energy. I think I’ll stick with my Casio.
