Gadget Geek: The Artiphon

An Instrument for Everyone
Image placeholder title

After years of development, the Artiphon multi-instrument is finally funded (surpassing its $75,000 Kickstarter goal by a million dollars) and moving into production. The Artiphon is designed to be “played” with the same gestures you would use on a stringed, woodwind, or keyboard instrument; it’s scalable in complexity, and since it’s a class-compliant USB MIDI and audio device, it has plug-and-play compatibility with hundreds of apps to let you play any sound you like (or use its companion app to design your own). Prices start at $349; for more information, visit
