The Ring-Con is a deceptively versatile accessory for the Nintendo Switch, getting players into a wide variety of stretches, exercises, and yoga poses in Ring Fit Adventure. Thanks to the modding fanbase, the Ring-Con can now add “musical instrument” to its resume.

Ressa, who goes by Ressa & the Robotic Orchestra on YouTube, recently uploaded a new video demonstrating her latest project, the Ringcordion. Using software programs Unity and Wwise, as well as a Ring-Con Driver by GitHub user ringrunnermg, Ressa engineered her Ring-Con to play accordion sounds as she pulls and pushes on it. She is able to switch keys by pushing the face buttons, and switch between major and minor by tilting the Ring-Con.



Ressa encourages others to try out the Ringcordion for themselves, with the project freely available to download from GitHub.

For those interested in learning how the Ringcordion came to be, Ressa teased that there is more content to come regarding the makeshift. “I’m going to make a video about the history of this project,” Ressa teased. “How I researched it, how I made it sometime [in the future].”
