Stanford's Mobile Phone Orchestra Uses The iPhone to Make Music

First Mobile Phone Orchestra Shows Us How It's Done

You can already check your email, play games, and find a new restaurant on your iPhone, but now you can also use it as a musical instrument and join an orchestra. No way, right? Leave it to the uber geeks at Stanford to figure out a way to harness the vibrations from the iPhone and turn it into music.

Ge Wang, the founder of Stanford's Mobile Phone Orchestra (or MoPho), shows us how he and his mates make beautiful music in the video above. Also in the video is an awesome app you can download at home to make your own sweet tunes. To find out what it is, just read more.

The app is called Ocarina, and for a dollar, you can make your own sweet flute-like music on your iPhone and iPod Touch. Plus, by clicking on the "world view" you can see and hear what other people are playing around the world. I think that may be the best part, since I'm not so sure how good I'd be playing a flute on the iPhone!
