The Reactable
"The reactable is an electro-acoustic music instrument with a tabletop Tangible User Interface that has been developed within the Music Technology Group at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain by Sergi Jordŗ, Marcos Alonso, Martin Kaltenbrunner and GŁnter Geiger.[1]"
"The reactable is a round translucent table, used in a darkened room, and appears as a backlit display. By placing blocks called tangibles on the table, and interfacing with the visual display via the tangibles or fingertips, a virtual modular synthesizer is operated, creating music or sound effects."
Stolen from Wikipedia :P

In any case, this is a (bleep)ing awesome instrument thing.
