New Musical Instrument Monday: The OtomaTone

Leave it to those wacky Japanese to come up with new monophonic performance instrument with a funny face. It's the OtomaTone. Although you can squeeze the face so it looks like it's singing, the secret is the ribbon controller on its upper half. The company describes it as a cross between a theremin, an actual musical instrument, and a Japanese toy.

If for nothing else, it's a good prop for a music video.

The OtomaTone doesn't begin until 25 seconds in.
