musical creations are more the rule than the exception 'round these parts, but we've got to give credit where it's due, and the hipDisk most certainly takes motion-based music making to an entirely different platform. The self-proclaimed "most undignified musical instrument ever" goes about its noise making ways by utilizing soft switches on the two discs, which create a variety of chimes based on one's movements.
