Upenn Pr2 Robot is the Loneliest Little One-Man (or One-Robot) Band

Upenn Pr2 Robot is the Loneliest Little One-Man (or One-Robot) Band
I’m a sucker for robots playing musical instruments. But despite the technical skill it took for the team to get a PR2 robot programmed to play both keyboard and drums at the same time, he just seems a little lonely up there on the stage without some other robot companions.

The Tetris Theme Gets Lyrics

The Tetris Theme Gets Lyrics
With a title like “A Complete History Of The Soviet Union Through The Eyes Of A Humble Worker, Arranged To The Melody Of Tetris” and music by “Pig With The Face Of A Boy,” I at least had to give this music video one view.

DIY LEGO Headphones: Hopefully They Won’T Fall Apart

DIY LEGO Headphones: Hopefully They Won’T Fall Apart
If you think that LEGOs rule, then look no further, because there’s a guide out there that will allow you to make your own LEGO headphones. These headphones will definitely make you stand out from the crowd.

Mattel Loopz: if Simon Married Merlin and Had a Kid

Mattel Loopz: if Simon Married Merlin and Had a Kid
Music pattern-matching games like Guitar Hero owe a lot to the early electronic games of the 1970s like Simon and Merlin. Now Mattel is back with a brand new music game which feels like a modern homage to the classics.

The Millennium Falcon Guitar: Not Quite Ready for the Kessel Run

The Millennium Falcon Guitar: Not Quite Ready for the Kessel Run
I don’t think that Han Solo ever intended that the Millennium Falcon would be used as a model for a guitar, but musically inclined Star Wars geeks will rejoice when they see this nifty axe made to look like Solo’s ship.

Chipophone: the 8-Bit Organ

Chipophone: the 8-Bit Organ
At first glance, this might just look like one of those organs you used to see in the shopping mall when you were a kid. But under the hood of this bit of musical nostalgia is the ultimate chiptune machine.

Pnoe Horn Pwns All Other Horn Speakers

Pnoe Horn Pwns All Other Horn Speakers
We’ve featured several horn speakers here at technabob, but I think none of them are as menacingly huge as Arcadian Audio’s 100-watt Pnoe Speakers. Each of these beasts measure approximately 87″ x 39″ x 35″ and weigh a hefty 114 lbs. 

Heinz Can of Beans Amplifer: Musical Fruit

Heinz Can of Beans Amplifer: Musical Fruit
While it’s not as cool as those mini Marshall and ORANGE amps, this is certainly one of the more unusual portable amplifiers I’ve seen. Hand-built by some guy simply going by the name “Marcn,” this isn’t any ordinary can of beans.

Legend of Zelda a Capella and a Violin-a

Legend of Zelda a Capella and a Violin-a
Here’s a nice little interlude by singer-violinist and all-around Nintendo fanboy Diwa “Master Diwa” de Leon to help you chill out this holiday weekend.

Super Beatbox Mario

Super Beatbox Mario
Not to be outdone by Super Violin Mario, Japanese beatboxer Hikakin takes on the theme and plenty of effects from Super Mario Bros. with nothing more than his mouth.

Fully Playable Electric Guitar T-Shirt: This One Goes to 11

Fully Playable Electric Guitar T-Shirt: This One Goes to 11
While I’ve seen everything from keyboards to LEDs integrated into t-shirts, this is the first time that I’ve seen an actual guitar put into a t-shirt. That’s not all: this funky t-shirt comes even with an amplifier.

It’s Video Game Violin Time!

It’s Video Game Violin Time!
Sit back, relax and crank up the volume for these awesome clips video game music and sound effects played on violin by artist Teppei Okada. Okada’s musical timing is so impeccable that I only wish these had been the soundtracks to the original games.

Urbanears Medis Earphones Won’T Hurt Your Ears or Your Pockets

Urbanears Medis Earphones Won’T Hurt Your Ears or Your Pockets
In-ear earphones are great at blocking outside noise and usually fit snugly inside the ears, but I don’t like using them because after only a few minutes of putting them on, my ears start to hurt.

Child of Eden: Crazy Music Game for Xbox 360 has Us Scratching Our Heads, but We Like It

Child of Eden: Crazy Music Game for Xbox 360 has Us Scratching Our Heads, but We Like It
Child of Eden is the latest casual video game from Tetsuya Mizuguchi, creator of REZ, Space Channel 5 and Lumines. The trippy psychedelic visuals and audio carry on the tradition of weird, wild, and addictive music games from the slightly off-kilter mind of the gaming genius.

Rock Band 3 Details Emerge, Keyboard Confirmed

Rock Band 3 Details Emerge, Keyboard Confirmed
The guys working on Rock Band 3 revealed to USA Today that the new game will add new advanced gameplay modes for “pro” players – but the big news is…. drumroll, please… a keyboard! Yep, and this keyboard won’t just have five color-coded buttons on it.

Pocket Synths: Paperkraftwerk

Pocket Synths: Paperkraftwerk
Artist Dan McPharlin makes incredibly detailed miniature synths and other electronic instruments out of cardboard: Wow. There are so many neat touches in that picture alone: the tiny monitor and the wires on the lower left synth, the wood-like paint on the upper right synth… Maybe someone can embed a chip or something and make these things actually play tiny bleeps and bloops!
