Remember the Otamatone? It was kind of a bizarre singing musical instrument that was played by squeezing its face to produce a very unique waaaah-like sound. It’s since become available from places like Amazon for around $36, but iPhone and iPod Touch owners can now save themselves a bunch of money because the Otamatone is now available as a downloadable app. $2.99 is definitely a bit cheaper, and thanks to the iPhone’s touch screen and built-in gyro, it doesn’t appear to lose any of its functionality when it comes to playing, as demonstrated in this video.
