Tetrafol 700

Tetrafol, Sound Object by monome + machineproject + Fol Chen is an Adafruit Waveshield and then some! “the tetrafol circuit is basically an arduino and waveshield combined, with the unneeded bits removed and an accelerometer added. it’s surface-mount to be small.”

What went into the design? The construction of the thing?

the final circuit board is an arduino, [Lady Ada – Limor Fried] waveshield, and accelerometer smashed together and made very small. i really just put existing technologies together– i can’t take a lot of credit here.

the industrial design was more fun. we didn’t want to use plastic so we experimented with felt and wood. coming up with a size, shape, and feel were the main goals- to create something that was pleasant to hold and sturdy enough to be tossed in the air.
