Electronic USB Instrument Lets You Relive Your Glory Days in the Marching Band

As if USB guitars and USB keyboards weren't enough, Ion Audio's just produced a USB electronic Wind instrument. Shaped like a plastic clarinet, this gadget lets you simulate woodwinds, brass, strings, and synth instruments from the comfort of your computer desk.

Of course, playing a clarinet—and in turn, this USB wind instrument—is harder than playing the piano, which means this whole contraption would probably only be useful for existing clarinet players who didn't want to go to the trouble of learning keyboards. That's a gigantic market right there.
