Yamaha has unveiled a new, lower cost device called the Tenori-on with orange LEDs that is called a visual musical instrument. I honestly don’t get this thing. Yamaha says that the Tenori-On is now one of five musical instruments that have been inducted into the Museum of Modern Art's Architectural and Design Collection.

The device is said to be a lower cost version of the Tenori-on W that sells for $999. The New Tenori-on Orange device sells for $699.99. The only difference between the new cheaper O version and the older W version is that the new O version can't operate on batteries.

The instrument is a square 8x 8 inch board with a matrix of 16 vertical and horizontal rows of LED buttons. The LEDs blink on and off and show a visual image of the music structure as someone plays music. The whole thing is very strange to me.
