Imagine playing music with a laser beam. That is what a laser harp is, it is connected to a synthesizer. Once you pluck the laser beams, it transfers the song through the synth. The instrument became popular during the 80s techno era when artist Jean Michel Jarre brought it back into the picture.

#9. The Vegetable Orchestra

This looks ridiculous, but there is a band that goes around playing instruments made out of vegetables. Once the gig is done, the band concocts a soup with the same vegetables for the audience. Sounds like a lot of germs to me.
