TENORI-ON is the innovative music instrument that has been taken about 6 years for its completion, created by Toshio Iwai, a leading media artist in Japan. It has 16 x 16 LED buttons laid out on its surface. Each button lights in response to sound sequence so that you will be able to feel sound in both your eyes and ears.
