Jie Qi, from Media Lab’s High-Low Tech Group, took a synthesizer and distilled it into a compact, no-frills interface. About the size of an audio cassette, it has setting for multiple tones, looping ability, and five note polyphony.

As for documentation, they’ve made a homepage and a wiki page for it, so users can obtain one and start hacking it.
