The Yamaha TENORI-ON( GBP 599, about $1200 September 2007) is that instrument. TENORI-ON--designed by Japanese media artist Toshio Iwai is a touch screen allowing you to "draw" your music. It features not only provide the control interface to 16 layers, 256 preset tones, and 6 sequence/loop modes, but also displays in lights what is often a stunning visual feedback loop on whatever is being output by the device.

    Etch-a-Sketch and Light Bright haven't got a thing on the TENORI-ON. Designed by Toshio Iwai, the TENORI-ON is a "keyboard" instrument with a touch screen allowing you to sketch your music on the interface. It has all a digital musician's requirements like 16 layers, 256 preset tones, and 6 sequence/loop modes, but for those of us who are simply attracted to anything that twinkles, the TENORI-ON displays the musical output in lights. Listen to a painting. See a song. We're not sure which one is cooler, but the Yamaha TENORI-ON lets you do both.

    After seeing this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CWBgm_-Ggs) I really want one. I can't sing and I'm not exactly musically inclined but I'd love to learn!
