MaywaDenki OtamaTone.jpg

The Otamatone is a musical instrument developed in Japan by the Cube Works Company along with Maywa Denki and Novmichi Tosa. It is a musical-note shaped singing toy which requires two hands to be played: while one hand holds and/or squeezes the "head", the other hand controls the pitch of the tune by sliding the finger up and down the stem. The sound made by this instrument is often compared[by whom?] to the sound of a theremin and a synthesizer.
