Treadmill Computer Plays Portal 2 Theme Song: For Health and Science

Treadmill Computer Plays Portal 2 Theme Song: For Health and Science
GLaDOS is that you? YouTube member evi1wombat made waves on the Internet a few years ago when he hacked a busted treadmill computer that had been discarded at the back of his school’s gym and made it play Still Alive, the soundtrack to the first Portal game.

Isle of Tune: SimCity Sequencer

Isle of Tune: SimCity Sequencer
Digital audio workstations like Reason, Ableton Live and Apple’s GarageBand have made it relatively easy and cheap to make music. But even though these programs enable users to create tunes literally at the push of a button, their interface can be quite intimidating.

FlashHarp USB Harmonica: Hootie and the BlowFlash

FlashHarp USB Harmonica: Hootie and the BlowFlash
I had a couple harmonicas as a kid. I liked them because all you needed to do to annoy the hell out of the parents was blow on one for like 30 seconds. I hated it because blowing on the harmonica was all I could ever do.

Brando Bombshell MP3 Player: Exploding With Weirdness

Brando Bombshell MP3 Player: Exploding With Weirdness
I have so many questions about this MP3 player. Why not just call it a dynamite MP3 player? Why is it dynamite shaped? Why is it silver colored? What’s with the skull and crossbones? Oh wait.

Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman Has Karaoke Mode, Lets You Annoy People on the Go
Sony Ericsson unveiled a new music-oriented phone last week called the Mix Walkman. Aside from the usual range of features we’ve come to expect from smartphones, the Mix Walkman has a couple of neat extras that could make it a must buy for music lovers.

MIDI Hats Make Music While Looking Ridiculous

MIDI Hats Make Music While Looking Ridiculous
When I first saw these things, I honestly didn’t know what to say, but you get used to ridiculous headgear pretty quickly around here. These MIDI hats were designed by Sunny Oh and Anna Obikane, and allow you to make music.

TurboHarp ELX: The Harmonica Goes Electric

TurboHarp ELX: The Harmonica Goes Electric
I’m always coming across all sorts of interesting inventions over on Kickstarter, and this one is definitely one of the more unusual ones I’ve seen lately. The TurboHarp ELX is what its inventor calls “the world’s first and only fully-electric harmonica.”

Put Your Records on Your Wall with the Vertical Vinyl Record Player

Put Your Records on Your Wall with the Vertical Vinyl Record Player
You can take one look at my room (and entire house) and surmise with a glance that I don’t really have much room to spare with all the junk I have lying around the place. Old books, clothes, magazines, bags, shoes– you name it, it’s probably hanging (or perched) somewhere in my messy abode.

LEGO Ukulele Perfect for Geeky Hawaiians

LEGO Ukulele Perfect for Geeky Hawaiians
I took guitar lessons when I was a kid, but I never practiced because practicing anything wasn’t for me. The instructor kicked me out of class, and I moved on with my life. I have never seen a ukulele in real life, but I always thing of big Hawaiian dudes playing them as people get off a ship.

Trash Amps: for the Treehugging Music Lover

Trash Amps: for the Treehugging Music Lover
Headphones are sometimes called cans, but Trash Amps steals the moniker and takes it quite literally, although you can also call them takeout boxes, because that’s exactly what they are – speakers with recycled cans and Chinese-food takeout boxes for bodies.

Minecraft Universe: Dig This Music Video

Minecraft Universe: Dig This Music Video
I’m not sure if this is the first music video to be made in Minecraft, but it’s pretty awesome nonetheless. It’s called Minecraft Universe, and it shows a Minecraft character’s dream. The song and the animation were both made by Eric Fullerton.

Goldfish Music Video Loves Retro Games

Goldfish Music Video Loves Retro Games
The new music video for the band Goldfish perfectly captures the spirit of classic 8-bit and 16-bit console and arcade games in a tidy little package. The music video for We Come Together makes reference to many classic games, as well as a few other pop culture icons, as well as some more recent memes like Keyboard Cat, with a little Kenny G thrown in for good measure.

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.

Rubik’s Speaker: No Solving, Just Sound

Rubik’s Speaker: No Solving, Just Sound
Here’s a great gift for Rubik’s Cube fans – the officially-licensed Rubik’s Speaker. Fortunately – or unfortunately for hardcore fans – the speaker isn’t puzzling to use. It’s powered via USB and has a 3.5mm jack.

Airpiano Like an Air Guitar, Only Fancier

Airpiano Like an Air Guitar, Only Fancier
I wager that at one point or another we have all played a little bit of air guitar when the mood hit while jamming to a good song on the radio. I know I have seen plenty of folks get down with some air guitar, but I can’t say that I have ever seen anyone get fancy with some air piano.

Nintendo Street Performer: Mario Melodica

Nintendo Street Performer: Mario Melodica
Mike Choi busks for money every Saturday at Little Tokyo in LA. He plays the melodica quite well and also takes requests, but you should really hear him play his geeky repertoire – themes from classic Nintendo video games like Super Mario Bros.,
