Ever wanted to play drums on your iOS device — without actually destroying it? Check out this great Instructables project from aymans:
Multi-touch is a wonderful thing. But sometimes, the act of creating is done with a tool, like a drumstick or a stylus. It turns out, it’s easy to make a set of drumsticks for a modern capacitive device (like an iPad). You just need a few special things.
The sticks work in any application since they send the same sort of signal your hand does. I made a few iPad apps that are being submitted to the Apple store…till they become available, the Magic Piano is super fun with them.
