"The way this works is: When any two of the four electrodes touch, it creates a sound. The current is conducted through the players' bodies. The console determines where the four electrodes are in contact, and creates a different tone depending on the position."
In drum mode, the players can make the sounds of bass drums, snares, hi-hats, and cymbals. "Friends and families can get together and have fun doing this. We hope people will play Ningen Gakki at parties, as a family game that doesn't have winners or losers." Ningen Gakki will be released in June 2011, priced 3360 JPY / $41 USD. (DigInfo)
