You gave a concert in that? You’re braver than I thought. This Millennium Falcon Violin sadly, has no strings, so you can’t play it, but you can hang it on your wall and admire it.
Artist Richard Symons created this cool sculpture around a real violin.
Are you tired of other people complaining about their first world problems? Get out your fingers, and play them the world’s tiniest violin. This version actually works, thanks to the folks at Design I/O. It produces actual sad music.
Back in April we checked out a 3D printed violin that looked more like a Predator’s weapon than a musical instrument. But 3D printing isn’t just about making new physical forms. The technology can be tuned for very practical purposes as well, as exhibited by violin maker Hovalin.
The image you see here is not a woman giving a violin concert on an alien world using an alien violin. It’s actually a 3D printed instrument called a two-string piezoelectric violin. Despite its otherworldly looks, it was really created right here on Earth.
Since retiring in 2002, mechanical engineer and bioengineer Seth Goldstein has spent a lot of his free time making kinetic sculptures. You may have heard of him before as the creator of the Why Knot?, a machine that continuously ties and unties a necktie.
With their chicken-wire like appearance, I thought that electrostatic speakers like those produced by MartinLogan were the weirdest of its kind. Until now. Behold, the Viotone M One, a speaker that pipes its sound through a violin.
OMG I loathe PayPal. As a seller, you can count on losing your money 99% of the time if a buyer complains about anything. As one seller named Erica found out, if the douchebag that buys your stuff complains that it is a fake, PayPal may even tell the buyer to destroy the item in question rather than send it back to the seller.
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.
Well, maybe not yet, but it’s still impressive that this ‘bot can actually play the violin! I don’t think that human orchestras are in any danger, but it just goes to show that robots can be programmed to do anything.
We’ve featured a variety of iPhone musical instruments around here, including pianos, guitars, drums, and even ocarinas, but this is the first time I’ve come across an app that lets you play your iPhone like it was a violin, viola or cello.
