The jig is up!

The fact that Everbright Toy co. of China includes a pitch wheel on their DSI like keyboard may seem trivial to most everyone, except me. What’s happening here is a clear reflection of the market trend toward more flexible musical instruments with Circuit Bent and Synth-like qualities that can be produced cheaply and in large numbers. What’s next, a 555 timer circuit that comes stock? Perhaps. Also note the somewhat unusual pleasant silver finish, once again no need to spray paint something that already looks cool.
