Artist Designs Next-Gen Bluetooth Didgeridoo. Yep.

If you’re not familiar with the telltale sound of a didgeridoo, Australia’s famous aboriginal instrument, think ‘being run over by a musical train’. If the thought of being run over by a musical train appeals to you, read on.

24-year-old Kyle Evans is a didgeridoo enthusiast. Apparently, such a thing exists. He is also an electronic music enthusiast. These two musical styles would appear as apples and oranges to most, but not to Kyle. After an experiment  with a Big Gulp and a USB adapter failed, Evans went on to develop his now-Bluetooth-based model, which plays notes strikingly similar to that of the real thing, with a slight digital flourish.

Interface with the unit is identical to a traditional didgeridoo, via mouthpiece, but with digital knobs that allow Evans to signal his laptop to modulate the sound.

 His goal? To play his creation for the Aboriginal people who developed the now-obsolete analog version.

An enthusiast of the musical avantgarde, I can only say this is totally didgericious.

Oh, what, you want to hear it? I thought you’d never ask.
