This is my first project using MUSE, a circuit board that I designed for creating Music Using Simple Electronics. It’s very similar to and largely inspired by the Makey Makey. Read more about MUSE in another blog post. I prepared this project as a demo for kids in a class called Magical Musical Objects at the Children’s Museum of Bozeman STEAMlab, where they wired up their own MUSE kits and programmed them to play notes and songs by touching potatoes. While developing the first prototype, my son enjoyed playing an apple!
