What is it?
With the advent of version 6, Safari has implemented WebAudio, making it useable on mobile devices running iOS 6 such as iPads. Having a consumer appliance with a touch screen supporting this technology creates a very interesting field for experimentation.
As such, the resulting experiment is a (multi)touch enabled synthesizer. By creating movable nodes with very exact frequencies, a creative user can coax all manner of other wordly sounds, and perhaps, find an instrument within their hands.
Touch Synthesizer is an official Chrome Experiment.
