Get Hands On With Fol Chen’s Tetrafol

Lucky you if you’re ambidextrous. Musical group, Fol Chen, along with Monome and Machine Project, created this intriguing new handheld instrument, the Tetrafol, which allows users to control sound with their bare hands. The new Tetrafol features a battery-powered wooden tetrahedron, which contains the hardware that detects orientation and movements. These movements are then used to change the playback of sound. Fol Chen includes their own creations in the instrument, but users can also upload their own sounds, then play them back through built-in speakers. The Tetrafol team is only making 100 of these instruments, so if you snooze, you’ll lose. Retails for $110 and available here.
