A Wild Combination

We love people who take common everyday items you might find at a garage sale, and then turn them into something with real artistic appeal. Canadian artist Graeme Patterson has done just that with his whimsical Hockey Organ, combining an old table hockey game, a 1980s era Casio electronic keyboard, and other assorted bits to recreate the look and feel of a live event. The keyboard has been hacked so that each note moves a different player on the rink, resulting in totally unpredictable on ice action, while your music plays through speakers.

Topping it all off, the whole event is televised using two tiny cameras and the screen that forms the back wall of the stadium.
