Unconventional musical instruments are certainly not new, just check out Nike Sneaker Synthesizers by Japan’s HIFANA. Jesse Chorng‘s The Syntheshredder, however, maybe the first to incorporate an entire skate bowl. The UCLA graduate student devised a 20-foot in diameter skate bowl embedded with sensors right beneath the skate surfaces. This alteration will transforms any rider to be a potential musician as well every time he or she take a spin in the bowl. After the initial built, Chorng is at the final but crucial stage – the actual process of adding the necessary components for the bowl to become a full fledge musical instruments. And this is where you can help. By pledging $1 or more on The Syntheshredder’s KICKSTARTER page, you can assist Chorng in completing his project.
