Being sold in UK from September. Probably costs a fortune.

It's reminiscent of Monome which was $500 fully built but open source. This is just a controller box with leds under buttons that send button signals over USB and receive signals to light certain leds. It doesn't even need to be used for music.

The Tenori-On has speakers and seems to produce music itself. I guess it can also be used as a controller and plugged in to a USB? Details are sketchy.
