Synthesizer T-shirt that you can play
ThinkGeek has released a T-shirt with something resembling a Moog on it – that you can actually play. The ‘synth’ on the shirt features 5 different sampled sounds plus 8-voice polyphony (!). It even comes with a “vintage’ amp box that clips on to a belt.
The T-shirt is pretty ridiculous, but at the same time a bit compelling. ThinkGeek says:
This fully-playable, t-shirt-based music synthesizer features professional quality sounds in a unique wearable format. With eight-voice polyphony, high-quality sampled sounds and stylist retro amp box, you’ll be jamming like Thomas Dolby and Kraftwerk in no time… wearing the Electronic Music Synth Shirt may result in an overwhelming surge of emails, text messages and phone calls, strangers sending you their underpants, and paparazzi photographing your trip to the comic book store. Such is the life of a rock god – get used to it.
…or get used to people laughing at you behind you back. Here’s a video of the $29.99 shirt being played:
