Social Ocarina

This is an Ocarina. This too is an Ocarina.

An Ocarina is a wind instrument that sounds similar to a flute.

Within 5 minutes of hearing about it from a friend, I am able to purchase an Ocarina for 99 cents and play it. It’s easy on the iPhone. I just blow into the microphone and touch the blue spots to vary the sound. I can also listen to someone playing in Lisbon, Portugal (and many other cities) by switching to a global listening view. That’s the “social” part.
