Buddha Machine - iPad edition

FM3 Productions Ltd

[ This app may no longer be available for download ]

The Buddha Machine is a palm-sized plastic box that plays meditative music loops composed by Christiaan Virant and Zhang Jian.

The New York Times calls the Buddha Machine “beautifully useless,” while the Washington Post describes it as "bliss."

This iPad version allows you to mix the music of SIX Buddha Machines to create your own evolving ambient symphony!

Featuring hypnotic music designed to create a calming presence in today's fast-paced world, the Buddha Machine’s colorful charm provides an experience that is hard to define. Essentially, it's a box with a life; a tool for living, and to many, a friend.
