These MIDI Music Hats, seemingly spawned during a drunken three-way between a snowman, the Smurfs and something sprung from the mind of the late Dr Seuss, are allegedly an art project cooked up by Sunny Oh and Anna Obikane.
Worn on the head, as hats are wont to be, they include a variety of soft balls, lights and sensors that play musical tones when manipulated by the wearer or a willing partner.
While music may be a bit of a stretch when it comes to labelling what these hats create, I will say they definitely sound like an old school video game arcade.
That’s something, right? [Akihabara News]
