At last, a Buddha Machine app for iPads

At last, a Buddha Machine app for iPads

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Wow, this mind-numbingly long bus ride/dentist office visit/family holiday would be sooooo much better if only I could make weird drone noises on my iPad?” If so, well then buy yourself a lottery ticket, because it’s your lucky day! The Buddha Machine, a small, battery-powered box that creates looping drone noises has just been reborn as an iPad app and as a new model, called Chan Fang. (Chan Fang translates to “zen room.” YES.)

Chan Fang, like all Buddha Machine creations, is the product of Chinese art duo FM3. Chan Fang will deliver four different ambient loops performed on a seven-string zither called the Qin. The iPad app features the sound of six different Buddha Machines.
