Yamaha has a new concept digital musical instrument known as “Tenori-On”. The device’s LED buttons are used to play phrases and tempos, making it pretty unusual and unlike any other musical instrument. Both rear and front sides feature 256 LEDs.
The LEDs on the front side can be pressed by the user to play music and compose songs, while the rear side LEDs show the same pattern in order to provide viewers with a visual presentation to complement the audio part. You can save the songs you created on the Tenori-On by recording them to an SD memory card. This concept digital music instrument will retail for $1,158 later this May.
