In keeping with our brave new, hamster-powered world, Levy Lorenzo has submitted his contribution to society in the form of the hamster-controlled MIDI sequencer. "It's three note polyphonic. Each channel is controlled by two hamsters, one for the melody, one for the rhythm." Heaven have mercy on the poor fool who switches the rhythm hamster with the melody hamster. If developing a MIDI interface for your hamsters wasn't nerdy enough, the project page also describes his extensive use of Markov chains (you have been informed, warned). Link includes video of the hamsters in action, and hamster-produced MP3s.
