SMU President’s Scholar Christian Genco uses food and technology to perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the SMU Talent Show on September 28, 2012. A senior computer science major, he designed this homemade musical instrument using a prototype “invention kit,” assigning each piece of food and drink a particular note to play. When Christian touched each item, an open circuit was completed sending a signal to his computer to play each note.
