Guitar Pee: cheeky marketing stunt uses interactive urinal guitar

"Guitar Pee is a urinal equipped with sensors that plays music when someone pees on it. The different strings play different electric sounds depending on the aim of the stream, and at the end of your session you can even send an 'MPee3' straight to your phone to share your moment. Clearly, this isn't a concept for the ladies but you can try to woo them with your song even if you don't have a clue how to play a real guitar (they don't have to know the source of your craft). After all, the Guitar Pee tagline is 'Music. We know it comes from everywhere.' We guess it's better to hear rock music when you pee than the generic trickling water sound."

Soundmachines: a tangible music sequencer using visual patterns

"An instrument for performing electronic music. Three units, which are resembling standard record players, translate concentric visual patterns into control signals for further processing in any music software. The rotation of the discs, each holding three tracks, can be synced to a sequencer.

The Soundmachines premiered on the Volkswagen New Beetle stand at the IAA motor show in late Summer 2011. In cooperation with the sounddesigner/ producer Yannick Labbé of TRICKSKI fame, we developed three unique discs, each controlling one track of an Ableton Live Set exclusively made for the Event. The show was supported by a set of realtime generated visuals, running on a 25m wide LED wall."
