Ningengakki turns body parts into musical instruments

Japanese toy maker Takara Tomy has created an anthropomorphic toy that uses conductivity to transfer the human touch into a bass drum, snare, or other musical instrument. You can play with up to 4 people and create your own sound, or pick from one of the 10 preset melodies to jam with.

I can totally see this catching on with NYC subway performers!

There is even a YouTube page set up that features different people experimenting with their bodies.
Ningengakki (literally, human instrument) goes on sale this later month and retails for 3,360 yen.
