hipDisk Gets Jiggy Not At All

hipDisk

By Evan Ackerman

Winner of the prestigious “Simultaneously Most Hip and Least Hip” award is the hipDisk, a totally unique musical instrument designed by Danielle Wilde. It’s billed by the designer (not us, the designer) as “the most undignified musical instrument ever,” and she’s not kidding:

As you gyrate spastically, switches inside the disk translate your movements into sounds. Yes, you could kinda do the same thing with a belt, but part of the point is visualizing the movement and resulting sounds. The designer will ultimately outfit a small orchestra of hipdisked women; currently there is no version for men. What a shame.
