On April 3rd, a special edition of book-like science magazine “Otona no Kagaku” (“Adult Science”) will go on sale paired with “Pocket Miku”, a miniature Hatsune Miku keyboard.

The keyboard, a completely new type of sound generator, is created by Yamaha and known as the eVocaloid LSI NSX-1. It consists of a carbon printed piano keyboard that, when played with the included stylus, utilizes Hatsune Miku’s sound data to output her voice through the built-in speaker. 5 buttons control the vowel sound produced by Miku, and the keyboard includes preset songs that can be played automatically. The keyboard also includes vibrato and octave up/down functions.

The magazine and keyboard retail for 4,980 yen, plus tax.
