Midterm Proposal

Title: The Finger Drums

1) Concept + Design + Goal:

The finger drums will be designed to be with visible, audible and touchable functions.

It is an aesthetically artistic item connected with visual sounds on Processing. I design for a person who likes to play by oneself. This can be so easy to play. The function will be able to press 4 buttons like 4 different sound pitches.

I will use a LilyPad board and conductive thread on a glove. I thought the flex sensors were great to create pitches and circuits but finally, I decided to sew conductive thread on the glove. The thumb will be “-” and other 4 fingers will be “+” circuits.

I tested just simple basic steps because I had some issues like “home-brew” on my computer system. I had hard time to upload between LilyPad and Arduino.

2) Prototype:

LilyPad Glove – Test1

LilyPad Glove – Test2
