The Omniphone is an Inclusive Instrument #Teensy #MusicMonday #3DPrinting
The Omniphone is an absolutely fantastic project that aims to enable everyone to make music! CDM breaks it down well here:
These designs for music therapy collaboration do make new demands to better remove restrictions present on other instruments. That bulbous shape makes the objects playful and encourages touch. Capacitive sensors make it responsive – with light and vibration feedback. The Teensy, a powerful and friendly inexpensive embeddable platform, powers the brains.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
