Reactable

I don't usually blog about kooky, geeky music instruments, because that's what the fantastic blog music thing is for, but this one is special: reactable is a "tangible" musical instrument that is based on a table, with pieces that you can move around to change how they interact. What makes it special is that the developers had the idea for what they wanted to create and then figured out how to create it rather than starting with a piece of technology and trying to figure out what they could do with it. (Of course there's nothing wrong with that, lots of creative genius starts with exploring new technology, but the world seems to be awash with that kind of thinking at the moment). The end result looks very musical.
