Korg Monotron Hacked into Gesture Synth called the Borgatron.

"Korg Monotron modified by replacing analog pots with digital ones that are controlled by a wii nunchuck in one hand and a pot selector in the other.
The x,y accelerometers and the x,y joy thumbstick are mapped to individual digital pots.
Meaning that you can wave the nunchuck around and make lots of complex sounds. The monotron ribbon has also been removed and a visual basic sequencer directly drives the monotron. So from monotron to Borgatron. Its an ugly beast only its mother could love.
So really it is a form of Gesture synth as you have to move your arms about and strike a pose.... possibly very good for Electro Vogue-ing."
