Bliptronic 5000

I know what I want for the holidays…

the Bliptronic 5000

ThinkGeek is selling a very cool monome-like synth toy called the Bliptronic 5000. Ha ha! Looks like a ton of fun. I’d love to do a live song with it. According to the Website specs are:

  • Unusual retro synthesizer is played with a grid of glowing buttons
  • Create looping patterns and change them dynamically while playing
  • Chain multiple units together and create more complex melodies
  • One octave range. 8 notes can be played simultaneously
  • 8 different old-skool synth sounding instruments to choose from
  • Sounds created using FM waveform synthesis
  • Set the BPM (beats per minute) from 60 to 180 in 20 BPM increments
  • Built in speaker with headphone jack and line-out jack
  • Front panel is constructed from brushed aluminum
  • Includes, manual and 2 link cables for connecting additional Bliptronic units
  • Requires 4 x AA batteries (not included)

All that for a meager $50. Not bad!
