The musical instrument you’ve never heard of but damn it’s cool [VIDEO]

I’ll put you out of your misery right off the bat. The musical instrument is called the Eigenharp and it has to be one of the coolest ideas to come along in my opinion for a musical instrument.

The instrument comes from Eigenlabs and has been eight years in the making. Depending on which of the two currently available versions of the instruments you want, Alpha and Pico, they come with 120 playing keys, 12 percussion keys, two strip controllers, and a breath pipe or 18 playing keys, 4 mode keys, a strip controller and a breath pipe respectively. Both of the versions of the instrument can play an unlimited range of sounds and they both look pretty cools as well.

Here is a video of both versions being used to perform the Bond theme.
