You could have your very own band or orchestra at your beck and call, housed comfortably in an elegant handcrafted oak cabinet. The self-contained Hootenanny, apart from having a lovely name, also houses 17 musical instruments. Let’s go back a bit, Hootenanny… that’s a great word, and I’m going to try to sneak it into conversations all week. That, and bamboozled, because it’s cool.
Anyways, the Hootenanny houses seventeen instruments matched with precisely calibrated pneumatics that pluck strings and thump and tap the drums to create music. The machine stores over 13,000 MIDI, MP3, and Karaoke songs in a variety of genres. You could select your choice music using a 15-inch touchscreen interface and have your very own band swing into action. That setup is perfect for a Hootenanny. Unfortunately, the cost is no party at all for the penniless. It is priced at $54,000.
