8bit Violin

If it can be 8bitted – make it so. Well this homemade beauty was built as apart of an art experiment called an instrument a day, where artist Ranjit Bhatnager builds a new homemade instrument…um…each day. Today seems to be our lucky day as he decided to take on making an 8bit violin that actually works.   This awesome exploration of music and 8bit is made from maple and oak craft wood and 90 degree angles except for the fingerboard. Head over to to see a video of this masterpiece in action. When I watch that video it reminds me of that quote in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off -“‘never took a lesson in my life.” [Gizmodo]
