Korg partners with Little Bits for a Lego-like synth kit
Little Bits is an open source platform for electronic projects of all kinds. Korg has teamed up with them to build a modular synth kit that looks like too much fun.
From the Little Bits site:
From the Beatles to Björk, legendary artists have used analog synthesizers to produce complex sounds and innovative music. For the first time ever, the littleBits Synth Kit will enable anyone to build their own sound machines with little to no engineering or musical knowledge. Included is a handy 35+ page booklet, with step-by-step instructions for 10 great projects like the Keytarand Synth Spin Table. You'll also receive a 9V battery + cable, everything you need to get started right out of the box.
Here's what you get for $160:
1 Micro Sequencer
1 Synth Speaker
