The Mobile Phone Orchestra (Does It Beat the Big Piece of Broccoli?)

At Stan­ford, stu­dents have found a way to get mobile phones to make music. As you’ll see, the iPhone can now repro­duce the sounds of the oca­ri­na, a twelve thou­sand year old flute-like instru­ment. That’s the hi-tech way of doing it. There’s also the low-tech way of get­ting the same result. In this clas­sic bit of YouTube good­ness, you’ll see a big piece of broc­coli dou­bling as an oca­ri­na. Nev­er can get enough of this one.
