Play ‘Fruity Loops’ Circuit Playground Cap-Touch Drums Like a Pro with @AllAboutCircuit & MIT-i | #MusicMonday

Hilarious episode (below) from MIT-i for All About Circuits for turning the Circuit Playground into a capacitive touch drum system, while playing various vegetables and fruit (for the record tomato is a fruit, regardless of what the US Supreme Court says about it!):

What’s even better is that I wasn’t just limited to percussion. Suddenly, I was a multi-instrumentalist.
