A savvy solderer has hacked together a circuit-bent Realistic Concertmate 500 (basically a Casio SK-1) with an E-Stim sex toy and is currently selling the device on eBay. The sounds you would usually produce by playing the keys become electric sensations and the rhythm patterns act as electronic stimulation programs. The more keys are pressed, the more power is transmitted. It’s possible to use the synth’s 13 envelopes to modify the sensations. But the device comes with a warning: “Please don’t purchase this if you are new to e-stim, unless you have the patience to learn how it works. The sky is the limit, especially with the sampling feature since you can import new “sounds” (sensations) all the time.”
