Cybraphon: The Steam-Punk Robot Band

When we first started brainstorming our interactive music machine, The Improbable Orchestra many years back, one of the coolest ideas we floated was I think originally Jacob's. Imagine a Victorian era cabinet or Victrola stuffed with weird horns and keyboards and drums and musical instruments that a group of people could play with together to form a highly improbable orchestra. For a lot of reasons, mostly due to time, budget and ease of project completion, we went a more simplistic and electronic direction with hte project, but now it looks like someone else came up with the same idea on their own and made it real.

I am so happy this actually exists, now if only I could get one in my living room.
