Eric of LEMUR talks trons, slime, and sound –

Eric Singer has more than just a penchant for making his musical bots. In fact, he has a separate category altogether for very innovative musical controllers he creates and calls “Trons.” Here, we take our first look at the Slime-o-Tron – a controller that works by moving conductive slime around copper nails.

Any guesses as to the conductive additive?

Hmm, ferrofluid could be a fun option – LEMUR Slime-o-Tron: A Slimey Controller [via matrixsynth]
