Bitterwallet's Christmas List: No. 2 – the Otamatone

4 September 2009

Here at Bitterwallet, we’re all in favour of stuff we’ve never seen before. Last week we were agog, agog we tells ya, when a man rode into the BWHQ car park on a horse that had backwards-facing knees. Backwards-facing knees we tells ya!

Then someone, possibly Vince (who has had medical training) pointed out that ALL horses have backwards-facing knees. Aaargh, the shame!

Luckily, within minutes, we were back indoors and in front of our computer terminals when someone found this – the sexily-named Otamatone. Obviously, it hails from Aberdeen Japan. Watch agog as its beautiful mouth sings out the sounds that are made as the user presses skilfully on its tune-pipe.

We’ve definitely never seen anything like this before and hell, do we want one for Christmas!
