Moscow artist Aristarkh Chernyshev‘s TeleBlaster is pure retro 60’s futuristic design.
Aside from looking like a pretty lump of exploded red plastic, it also allows the user to tweak the signal processing. Users can load different effects algorithms from a flash-card or from the manufacturer web site.
