The Megalomaniac's Melodica   (+2)  [vote for, against]

All this talk of steam calculators had me pondering about fluidic amplifiers.

If you have never played a melodica, it's a wonderful experience. It's like playing a piano and a saxophone at the same time.

Fluidic amplifiers, amplifying a flow of air... there is only one conclusion.

Breath-controlled church organ.

A melodica player

Wouldn't it be nice to say "our church organist blows"? +

That melodica thing looks like some kind of strange digital accordion. Sounds like one, too.

I'm visualizing something like a really oversized set of bagpipes, here.

//strange digital accordion//

It's not digital - the recording quality of the linked video is a bit poor - but it is a free-reed instrument like a harmonica or an accordion. Except unlike an accordion, you blow. And unlike the harmonica, it has a keyboard.

We might build a special edition, just for you, which involves numerous air bags. However, the primary product will be slightly less drone-y and slightly more evil-genius-y.
