December 12th, 2008 – First there was the piano gloves, then the drum shirt, and finally the personal soundtrack shirt. User mikamika on Instructables has created the trendy bastard child of all those things: the wearable toy piano.

At its essence, the construction process is little more than deconstructing a toy piano and artistically attaching it to a shirt using conductive thread. In practice though, it’s much more difficult; most of that stemming from the artfully application of the components. While it’s not very practical (how shock-tastic would it be trying to play this while performing a sweaty live set), I don’t really care, it’s still really cool and very creative. Also, the design-snob part of me loves the aesthetics of it.

PS. It’s no secret that one of my favorite music-themed sites is CreateDigitalMusic. Peter has a new publication out at Lulu and you can support him by buying a physical copy for $19.99, or you can download the PDF version for free. It looks like it has some great articles in it so go and get it here!
