Barcode Scratching

Scheint ein veritables neues Genre zu werden.

Tokyo-based musician Ei Wada and his band, Electronicos Fantasticos, are known for upcycling old electric appliances (e.g., TVs, fans, and now a barcode scanner) into musical instruments. Here they test out their scratching „barcode-board,“ which consists of a humongous barcode reader and a skateboard outfitted with an attached scanner. He says „the signal is transmitted wirelessly to the speaker instead of a cash register,“ according to his YouTube page (and translated on Google).
