Kids can pick up just about anything from a scrap of cardboard to an array of cooking pots and turn them into musical instruments through the power of imagination; yet the Ototo by Yuri Suzuki, a media artist born in Tokyo, Japan, and based in London, England, takes this childlike creativity to the next level. It is a circuit board that can turn anything into an actual musical instrument.
Created by Dentaku, Suzuki's creative design and invention company, the Ototo by Yuri Suzuki works like a synthesizer. It is equipped with touch-sensitive sensors that can play the 12 notes of the Western music scale. By connecting random objects to these sensors, a musical instrument is born. While simple enough to be used by a child, Suzuki also created harder versions for adults.
