Violin Player

Alte Kobo of Japan has created a violin speaker. No, we're not talking about an external amplifier/speaker combo for your Dexy's Midnight Runners autographed electric fiddle - but a real working violin which can be plugged directly into you audio system as a, well, speaker! The Violin Player converts the audio signals into vibrations in place of a bow. Why!? Hell, we have no idea.
