It’s Called the gAtari: Half Guitar, Half Atari Console

I know what you’re thinking:  “I really like cheesey 8-bit sound but I really wish someone would invent and instrument that would make it easier to compose and play.”

This is where some dude called cTrix comes in.  He’s built a weird monstrosity he calls the gAtari, one of the strangest mash-ups since God invented the platypus.  

Gizmodo calls this half guitar/half Atari 2600 console an “Atari keytar.”  That’s about right.
