Mobile app developer and musician Steffest decided to create a simple music app that would run on Google Android, Windows Mobile, and the iPhone. It turns out that he couldn’t code once and use the same app on each platform. Instead he had to use three different programming languages to get the job done, one for each platform.

But the end result is that he managed to take to Android devices, two Windows Mobile devices and an iPhone, strap them to piece of wood, plug in a speaker, and create one of the strangest musical instruments I’ve ever seen.

You can check out a video of contraption in action after the break. it may look kind of silly, but it sounds surprisingly decent.
