Following news that animated sci-fi comedy Rick and Morty will be returning to screens in November, comes an unexpected collaboration with Teenage Engineering.
The PO-137 – a reference to Dimension C-137 where the protagonists of the show come from – is a limited edition Pocket Operator made in collaboration with Justin Roiland, who voices both titular characters.
The new Pocket Operator has virtually the same feature set as the PO-35 speak that we reviewed last year, sporting a vocal synth, sequencer, built-in mic, 120 seconds of sample memory and an alarm clock.
Where it differs from the PO-35 is firstly in its styling – it has an all-new LCD with Rick and Morty visuals – and secondly that there are eight voice character sampling options, all of which are provided by Roiland.
The PO-137 will be available online in July and in stores November, though pricing is not yet confirmed. Find out more on teenage.engineering.
