They're actually a keyboard toy and a percussion toy with "proximity sensor technology", but they look really cool!

Here's a link (http://musicthing.blogspot.com/2006/06/blue-man-groups-amazing-range-of.html) that has pictures and describes them.

"All the instruments use [i]"new proximity sensor technology, pre-programmed songs [and] interchangeable instrument sounds"[/i] to [i]"enable kids to mix and layer music with a simple wave of their hands."[/i] Entertainment Weekly played with them at Toy Fair: [i]"While the keyboard is interesting, it's the motion-sensor instrument that responds when you wave your hand over the tubes that floored me. But the best part? The ability to hook your iPod up to them and mix over your favorite songs."[/i]
