Zany 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. The design was meant to accentuate the interdependent relationship of the hip and torso and to enable "a small orchestra of hipDisked women to play chord structures together." Oh, we're so going to see that. Take a sneak peek of someone dancing solo after the jump.
