If your lifelong dream was to make music, but you lacked the much needed funk gene, Florian Kräutli has answered your sweet-sounding prayers, having designed the Human Antenna. Rather than inflicting acoustic agony on an unsuspecting audience, use what nature did give you: your body.
Don’t aspire to conduct a symphony, my tone-deaf, rhythm-less friends, conduct frequencies instead. (Huh?) Well, with the Human Antenna, simply walking across a carpet made of looms from conductive thread acts like the tuner of a radio. The carpet plus your mass equals beautiful music!
Florian Krautli's Human Antenna is a Radio Like No Other
