Create sweet, sweet electronic music simply by smoking a cigarette with the Ziggybox. The Ziggybox is a synthesizer that can be powered by either an open box of cigarettes or by a cigarette placed in its ashtray.

One might think that designers Christian Losert and Paul Schengber were trying to glorify or even advocate smoking with their creation; however, that isn't the case as the cigarettes in the ashtray don't even have to be lit to power the Ziggybox. All potential controversies aside, this synthesizer makes some sweet music. The whole set up is easy to control and manipulate, making this synthesizer perfect for those looking to try their hand at electronic music. You can see the whole thing in action in the attached video, but let me warn you ahead of time that you may feel a sudden urge to get up and start dancing.
