Stupephone / THER-E-THING
stupephone.jpg

Full name is \'The Incredible Stupephone - Featuring the amazing THER-E-THING\'.

In Stupephone mode, it\'s played by playing the \'keyboard\' with the metal fingerpick at the top right. The pitch is determined by the resistance, so it has to be retuned for each person playing it.

In Therething mode, you ground yourself on the red stud and play the metal plate like a theremin. The harder you press, the lower the pitch.... drumming your fingers on it sounds like someone hit R2-D2 with a tazer. Has about a 5-octave range if you can control it....
