Forget strings and keys. Just turn a knob to play Critter & Guitari’s Pocket Piano. “We wanted anyone to be able to make music anywhere,” says Christopher Kucinski, who designed the gadget with partner Owen Osborn. During development, the duo brought made-from-scratch instruments to art shows, and watched the audience play to get “a sense of what makes someone to want to touch something.” That led to the simple user interface—make music intuitively by touching the wooden piano keys. This mobile music maker is a creative way to bring your skills on the go.
An instrument for beginners and professionals with 7 modes: vibrato synth, harmonic sweeper, two-octave arpeggiator, octave cascade, Mono FM synth, FM arpeggiator, and Mono Glider. Features built-in speaker, 18 wooden keys and a .25" output jack. Can be powered both by a 9V battery or a wall charger (not included).
