The Skoog

Strumming a guitar or playing a flute is not always feasible for kids with physical disabilities.

Until the Skoog came along.

Created by researchers and musicians in Scotland, the instrument enables children, despite their handicaps, to play their favorite tunes. The device is soft and malleable and can be played by touching, tapping, squeezing or twisting.

The Skoog plugs into a computer’s USB port and gives kids the option of playing 12 instruments, such as trombone, violin or clarinet.
