While most of the musical instruments we cover are of the high-tech (or video game) variety, we can't help but be impressed by the ingenuity shown in inventor/musician Jim Miller's latest creation here. Dubbed the "Chord Hat," the homebrew contraption consists of three turkey basters that serve as peddles, which pump air to some party blow-outs mounted, naturally, on your head. In addition to providing some questionable musical accompaniment, they also serve to cue anyone else playing along to the proper chord. Still skeptical? Check out the whole thing in action after the break.
