At once a minimalist musical plaything and a hardcore old-skool synthesizer, the Bliptronic defies categorization as it belts out 8-Bit style style tunes from its grid of glowing buttons. You'll notice sound similar to a retro Casiotone with an interface not unlike a simplified Yamaha TENORI-ON... if that makes any sense. close-up Bliptronic Philosophy... in Regards to Music In the world of the Bliptronic, creating a song revolves around an ever evolving 4-beat pattern. Each row of vertical buttons represents the notes in one octave. Push a button to turn on a note, push the button again to turn off a note. Push multiple buttons in one vertical row to make a chord. The Bliptronic plays whatever you have selected in sequence horizontally across the display. When it reaches the end of the pattern, it repeats. The genius comes as you modify the pattern by turning notes on and off while the pattern is still looping to create evolving electronic melodies. playing in a group Knobs and Buttons, There are Some In addition to the grid of glowing LED buttons you'll notice some other controls on the Bliptronic. These allow you to set the tempo (From 60-160 BPM), choose the instrument (From 8 different retro-synth type sounds), adjust the volume and turn looping on or off. A big "play" button at the bottom makes the Bliptronic uh... play. If you hit it again it stops. Yep. looks stylish The Bliptronic is a Social Butterfly One Bliptronic is grand, but more Bliptronics are even grander. An infinite number of Bliptronics can be attached together using the link ports and included cables. When one Bliptronic reaches the end of it's pattern, the next Bliptronic is instantly triggered to start playing. This allows you to make longer songs where each person controls a section of the song. You can even set the tempo and instrument differently on each Bliptronic in the chain to achieve unconventional musical results.

Seriously though, the Bliptronic 5000 is a really cool little device that can provide hours of musical intertainment. It is simple to use and setup. It is actually pretty well made considering the price but I wouldn't recommend giving it to a little kid that might drop it since it is made of plastic.
You can link several of these things together to play and compose longer songs. Be sure to use the $ 10 off coupon that comes with the unit when you order your next two units from the Think Geek guys.
With some creativity you could use it to add a little something extra to a song.
If it were more than $40 than I would subtract a few stars, I think it's perfectly priced.
