Could This Super-Instrument Change The Future Of Music?

Behold: Instrument 1 could change the future of music.

Here's a thought: What if you could be the drummer, guitarist, keyboard player and bass player of your own band? What if you could be your own 5SOS? Your own Beatles?

Thanks to the genius folks at Artiphon, your rockstar dreams just got a little more real. Their stunning new creation, Instrument 1, is an instrument that allows you to play any instrument you like. Basically, it's an instrument that gives you the power to play any instrument you could possibly dream of. It's like instrument Inception.


People unsurprisingly heaped support upon the project on Instrument 1's Kickstarter (it got its funding of $75,000 in under six hours). I say "unsurprisingly" because after you watch the video below, you're really going to want this thing.

The first batch of Instrument 1s will start shipping in January 2016 and will be sold for $349. This is just the beginning for Instrument 1, and we can't wait to see the next generation of artists, musicians, and all sorts of creative thinkers do with it. (Kanye, if you're reading this, PLEASE do an album using Instrument 1. I need that in my life.)
