Song on a watermelon keyboard

I’m not sure what the “Playtron” is, but it appears to be a controller that, combined with a synthesizer and conductive objects (in this case, fruit) you can play music. The instrumentalist is Mezerg, a “one man band” who plays other instruments, like the theramin, on his channel, 

Beyond this I know nothing, but thought it was cool for soeone to play music on slices of watermelon. If you want to see the controller, or buy one, the link is below, in the YouTube description:

    Yeah, those set ups are neat. Somewhere I have a video of my kid playing the theme to Star Wars on play dough keys.

    I saw a vid of a guy recharging his phone with a lemon 🍋 fruit as a tool, who would have thought. Tomatoes, admittedly rotton, have always been an “instrument” of scorn.
