The pages of Popular Science reveal all the instruments you need for the world's weirdest orchestra. For the indecisive, there's the "cello-horn," pictured above. For giants, there's the 14-foot fiddle. And for those who like playing with their food, the singing coconut makes a nice fit. Personally, I would pick the typewriter that plays music as you type words.
