Ocarina created using three iPhones


This could possibly be the world’s most expensive ocarina. As you can see in this picture, three iPhones were inserted into a laser-cut body where the contraption sends the air blown through the mouthpiece to all three phones at once.

What’s really cool about the Smule Ocarina app for the iPhone is that none of the sounds are pre-generated. The software recognizes the roar of you blowing into the phone’s mic and converts it to the smooth sounds of a digital wind instrument.

Sorry to say but there isn’t any footage of the three iPhone ocarina being played, but the videos below give you an idea of how it would work and how sweet it can sound.
