Ningen Gakki Turns Random Body Parts Into Not So Random Musical Instruments

Here’s another fun toy from the minds of Japan’s Takara Tomy. The Ningen Gakki [JP] is an interactive electronic game that turns various body parts into musical instruments – sorta.

Basically the way the thing works is that you and up to three of your (close) friends hold onto the Ningen Gakki’s metal pads with one hand, then tap somewhere on your own skin or your friends’ to trigger sampled sound effects.

You can choose from several game play modes, as well as choose from various sound effects including animals, “warping sounds” and a drum machine. Here’s a quick look at the Ningen Gakki in action:

Well, that looks like fun – at least for a couple of minutes. It sorta reminds me of Twister, but with sound effects. I suppose you could try and play Twister at the same time as playing Ningen Gakki if you want.

You can get your hands on the Ningen Gakki over at Strapya World for ¥4030 (appx. $49 USD), where they’re taking pre-orders for late June shipment.
