Description

This 3D-printed instrument sounds like a violin, but it but doesn't quite resemble one. There's no scroll at the top, so the tuning pegs are at the chinrest. It has six strings, instead of the traditional four, allowing the instrument to reach a deeper range, like a cello. And there are four porcelain cow ribs attached to the left side of the body.

Made of plastic and porcelain, the instrument was the result of a collaboration between a musician, a mechanical engineer, and a sculptor at the University of Texas at Austin. It took them a year, and the design is intended to eventually be modified by other users.
