Leon invents the Samchillian Tip Tip Tip Cheeepeeeee

So, there's this guy called Leon Gruenbaum from New York. He's 40, he's in a band called Math Camp, and he's just re-invented the keyboard. He's taken one of those ergonomic PC keyboards and messed with it (and spray painted it) so that it's a MIDI keyboard. Rather than playing notes, each key changes the pitch of the existing note. So... press one key and it might jump up two notes in a scale. Another key might make it jump down three notes. Press loads of keys really fast, and you get very convincing widdly-widdly guitar solos, as this (53mb) video demonstrates. Oh yes, the keyboard is called: 'Samchillian Tip Tip Tip Cheeepeeeee'. Selected quote from Marvin Minsky? "Probably does everything except what you want it to do." (Thanks Mikey!)

Cheater! Why dont you learn how to wank like the rest of us! Although it is a pretty impressive invention....
Someone should be selling this! Now any geek can be an instant Rachmaninov!

At least I want one...
Hell yes. This thing is brilliant. I like to intuitively (spontaneously as opposed to sequenced) play and compose music, but I don't like practicing different scales and keys.

Problem solved. Wow.
