Unboxing the Tenori-On

Donald Bell takes the Yamaha Tenori-On electronic music instrument out of the box for the first time.


I don't easily give in to the gadget striptease of unboxing videos, but it felt a little like Christmas morning when Yamaha's futuristic Tenori-On music instrument landed on my desk today. Besides, with only 60 Tenori-On instruments on sale in the U.S. (only 17 left at the time of this writing), I figure this video might allow deprived electronic musicians to work through their anguish.

Expect a full review of the Tenori-On to make its way on CNET next week. By the looks of my video, I'll need some time to figure this thing out.

For more footage of the Tenori-On in action, take a look at my interview with Yamaha's Yu Nishibori, filmed at Robotspeak back in December.
