Artist Dan McPharlin makes incredibly detailed miniature synths and other electronic instruments out of cardboard: Wow.

Roland Lucina Ax 09: Shoulder Synthesizer or Keytar? Does It Matter What Its Called?

Roland Lucina Ax 09: Shoulder Synthesizer or Keytar? Does It Matter What Its Called?
To me, yes it does. Keytar is just too silly for me, right down there with slanket and yogilates. I can roll with shoulder synthesizer though, and that’s exactly what we have today, the Lucina AX-09 by Roland.

Apple ][ Gets a Brand New Synthesizer

Apple ][ Gets a Brand New Synthesizer
I still remember my first Apple computer. It was an Apple ][ with a whopping 16k of RAM and it didn’t even have a floppy drive. So the sounds that come to mind when I think of my old ][ are the squeals of program data loading from cassette tape.
