Didi Vardi enjoys bringing the smart and the useless together as much as we do. The "Vibrating Laser Balls Organ" is a wonderful, real musical instrument inspired by the Animusic's virtual Pipe Dream. Didi and his son Guy schlepped the 400 pound golf-ball-and-aluminum Stradivarius all the way from Israel to perform at Gadgetoff. We wept when we heard the sweet sounds of Titleists careening off extruded aluminum - what other music could possibly soothe the savage geek?
From The New Yorker -
“How long did you work on your vibrating balls?” Yossi asked.
“And why did you work for four months on this useless piece of equipment?”
“We loved it.”
