Bliptronic 5000 synthesizer: it's like a Tenori-On, but affordable

Darren Murph

Yamaha's Tenori-On may be swank, and the slightly more affordable 'Orange' version may be attainable for the middle-class, but we've been waiting far too long for an el cheapo version. Thanks to ThinkGeek, that wait has finally ended, and all of our most intense and outlandish dreams are now a reality. The Bliptronics 5000 LED Synthesizer is, for all intents and purposes, a cheapened and less-featured version of the aforesaid Yamaha, capable of spitting out 8-bit bleeps and bloops at varying tempos based on what buttons you have toggled. And look, for $49.99, it's tough to complain. Hop on past the break for a video demonstration, and feel free to go ahead and bust that plastic out while you're at it -- it's not like you haven't already taken it for quite the ride today.
