Musical instruments made from recycled household items

Japan and its technology are known worldwide, and now these tech geeks are entering the sustainable world. Not with some robot nor a vehicle, this time it’s about a contests in which contestants showed off musical instruments made from recycled household items:

Japanprobe writes how your daily trash can be recycled and turned into something useful:

• A saxophone made from a pipe, a film case, part of a balloon, and a bit of air pump hose
• A group of printers modded to play songs together
• A combination of disposable chopsticks, aluminum cans, and other items that a kid uses to play the Hanshin Tigers fight song
• Two aluminum cans and a straw create an instrument that can play Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
• A set of horns made from plastic bottles, cup ramen containers, and straws
The plastic bottle horns won the competition, with the 49-year-old housewife that made and played them receiving a 500,000 yen check!
