When you first lay eyes on the Wireless Catcher, you may mistake it for some steampunked time machine. Big mistake, pal.

The Wireless Catcher is actually a Wi-Fi-fueled analog synthesizer type of device. It creates noise, or music, when there is a Wi-Fi signal around. This music isn't something you'd necessarily want to play in the car, but it's still a cool idea nonetheless.

Yoshi Akai designs and decorates each Wireless Catcher himself, so you can enjoy high quality craftsmanship with your weird beeps and boops. Check out the video to see the Wireless Catcher in action. Catch the fever. Stats for Wi-Fi Synthesizers Trending: Older & Mild
