A piano made of sausages. Not the wurst idea in the world.
For many people, the sight of ten tasty sausages might look like an appetising meal (vegetarians, you might want to look away now...).
But for one German YouTuber, he picked up a pack of Bockwurst and saw only musical potential.
Don’t believe us? Prepare to have your mind blown…
Each sausage is individually hooked up to the PC through what look like crocodile clips – though, to be honest, the technicalities of the whole thing do leave us a little puzzled.
When Patrick touches the wieners (ahem), they react exactly as piano keys would; by sounding a note.
The instrument even has a name: ‘Bockwurstklavier’, or ‘Bockwurst piano’.
We’re very impressed by the contraption, but are slightly concerned that a lively bagatelle could easily turn the keys into an unwanted BBQ...
