This is One Weird Musical Instrument. Behold the Motorgan.

Okay, so the motorgan will never go into production as a real musical instrument. Conceived as an art piece by Russian media artist Dmitri Morozov, this thing is basically an organ/push-button accordion hybrid that (while looking suspiciously like the World Series trophy) has a series of electric motors tuned (well, sort of tuned) to different notes. The result is…interesting.

If you require an explanation of what the hell is going on here, head over to New Atlas.
