what an accomplishment!
2004-06-03 11:15:52 AM  
Folks, this is a major feat of engineering. Mock it all you want, but it is impressive. What's the best thing you have ever accompl.....

Sorry, I almost had myself on that one.

Now that I think about it, it's made out of the same stuff as their furniture.

Arriving soon at an Ikea near you.
2004-06-03 11:41:02 AM  
Come on, sing along!

Derm be dip-ter derm be frun-a-huuur, Bork! Bork! Bork!

I wish I had one of these as a child so I could have "accidentally" spilled water all over it.

(had to practice everyday and hated it, now hate self for ever giving it up)
2004-06-03 12:53:42 PM  
OMG, i wonder if they can make a box out of that shiat too!?!?!?!
2004-06-03 03:28:51 PM  
I love IKEA.
2004-06-03 03:28:57 PM  
see what happens when it's too cold to play outside?

I realize you're crying because regardless of how silly this is, it is actually more impressive than anything you have ever accomplished. Weep on, my friend, weep on.

They should guve these to bums for culture. It wouls even match the house!
2004-06-03 03:30:25 PM  
Yet again, the press still can't figure out how to really take advantage of this VISUAL MEDIUM called the INTERNET and provide us with A DAMN PICTURE OF THE BLODDY THING.

God the media sucks.

"There are no immediate plans to market the piano"

Yeah, good call.
2004-06-03 03:30:54 PM  
Should be "_Swedes_ make piano out of cardboard"

/Grammar Nazi
2004-06-03 03:30:55 PM  
I once knitted a piano... out of yarn

Swedish make porno out of cardboard

Anyone else see that at quick first glance?

/still doesn't have hair on my palms, so F off ma!

Ditto. Who'd have ever believed that our moms were right when they said "you'll thank me for making you take piano lessons one day"?
2004-06-03 03:31:35 PM  
I think I'll call it Portable Cardboard Music, or PCM for short! I'll be rich!!! What?

God the media sucks.

Perhaps they requested a picture and were not provided with one? Perhaps no pictures of it exist? Use your imagination you pamby-assed ninny.

Burn baby burn..

Wasn't it 2 Swedish homeless people who were farking in public a few months ago? I suppose they could use a little culture...
2004-06-03 03:33:33 PM  
American make headline out of too few words.
2004-06-03 03:33:54 PM  
Let 'em make a xylophone outta cheese and crackers. THEN i'll be impressed.
2004-06-03 03:34:10 PM  
Wow, next thing you know they'll make a guitar out of wood!
2004-06-03 03:34:45 PM  
Bork bork bork
2004-06-03 03:34:58 PM  
so noone has a freakin camera or a scale. atleast tell us how much the stupid thing weighs

2004-06-03 03:35:00 PM  
Coming to an [image from too old to be available] near you. And at $39.99 (tune it yourself with them annoying allen keys which never take into account how much force you need to sometimes apply so you end up using vice pliers to grip and turn the allen key of doom(TM) ), its a bargin!
2004-06-03 03:35:24 PM  
I was very glad to give up piano lessons. Kept playing flute, though. Only one note at a time - better for my tiny brain. My flute is made of skin. (sorry)
2004-06-03 03:35:36 PM  
Duh. You can put a sampler in anything. Including the cheese and crackers.
2004-06-03 03:35:41 PM  
Big deal. With one burrito, I can turn my arse into a pipe organ.
2004-06-03 03:36:42 PM  
Wow, next thing you know they'll make a guitar out of wood!

I thought that was the Norse?

Hmmmm, isn't that good?
2004-06-03 03:37:20 PM  
Always wanted a piano made out of lithe, young boys before he died:

2004-06-03 03:38:44 PM  

I got that! (or should I say that got me?)
2004-06-03 03:38:46 PM  
it is a cardboard synthesizer, actually, since the hammers and strings of a piano are replaced by integrated circuits, etc.
2004-06-03 03:39:56 PM  
Without a picture, I am skeptical.
2004-06-03 03:41:24 PM  
Dang buscemi, every time someone makes a cardboard piano, you gotta go and be all negative.
2004-06-03 03:41:41 PM  
And if it IS true, I am under-farking whelmed.
2004-06-03 03:42:03 PM  
As it's been pointed out, this isn't actually a piano. It's essentially a set of buttons that when pressed make a sound. Big deal. I could make the same thing out of old socks. Although it would probably smell.
2004-06-03 03:42:50 PM  
They cheated. Without hammers and strings, it's actually a synthesizer.
2004-06-03 03:42:56 PM  
Holy cow.... Is it just me, or have you been a lot more obnoxious than usual, mryoop? ;)
2004-06-03 03:42:59 PM  
But can they make a p-p-p-powerbook?
2004-06-03 03:44:14 PM  
What buscemi said. Pianos are not electronic thingees.
2004-06-03 03:44:33 PM  
American make my head asplode with bad grammar.
2004-06-03 03:44:38 PM  
it is a cardboard synthesizer, actually....

No, it's a cardboard *sampler*. It plays chip-embedded audio recordings when you hit a key.
2004-06-03 03:44:38 PM  
Buscemi, I owe you a Coke.
2004-06-03 03:44:56 PM  
Cardboard is made from wood. Move along, nothing to see here.
2004-06-03 03:45:08 PM  
Am I the only one who read that as "cardboard porno"?
2004-06-03 03:45:20 PM  
I once turned my Pipe Organ into a yogurt gun.

2004-06-03 03:45:27 PM  
El Farko: Nah, only when they make cardboard synths. I'd be all supportive and stuff if they made an actual carboard piano. Though I'd probably still say 'where da weighted keys at' :)
2004-06-03 03:45:44 PM  
I actually saw a piano made of gingerbread once. It was half the size of a regular piano. The only sound it made was *crunch*.

Don't know what's gotten into me today. Sorry, y'all.
