Ototo: bespoke musical instruments with pocket-sized circuit board

"Ototo–a pocket–sized circuit board in the mold of the Arduino and MaKey MaKey that was was designed to be a 'musical invention kit' and helps kids build bespoke electronic instruments without writing a line of code or burning a single finger on a soldering iron. It can play music out of the box with the 12 black and white triangles acting like piano keys and a surface–mounted speaker emitting sound, but it's killer application is the ability to create outlandish orchestras by connecting it to funky objects with alligator clips. Plants become percussive instruments, sauce pans become a drum set, and even simple pencil sketches can produce unique sounds when tapped."
