74€

Playtron is a new type of music device.

We usually connect it to fruits and play electronic music using online synthesizers. But you can use it with any music software, and conductive objects.

Delivery is free and online support is responis
How it works
All you need is a computer, our device and your body. Trust us, it is super easy - no music knowledge needed.

Get a conductive object (that is something that can let electricity through) and use it as a music note. Wires, plants, fruits&veggies, graphite, conductive fabric, so many options…

This is the first step into electronics, a toy for kids and grown-up kids, and a serious musical instrument also! A perfect present for all.

Here is a YouTube playlist for you, also check out our Instagram. And don't be shy to contact us!

TouchMe - music on human skin
Change sound using intensity of your interaction.
Instead of 16 on/off contacts that you get with Playtron, here you have two contacts that measure the intensity of the touch - it's surface area, muscle tension and humidity.
