This is one "sweet" project!
We're big fans of using capacitive touch devices as a "keyboard" of sorts -- hence our involvement with the MaKey MaKey. So this brilliant project that's been making the rounds in SparkFun HQ really hit home! This comes to us from Jan Willem and Andrew Huang, who used peaches, an Arduino, and the wonder of capacitive touch to play the classic song "Peaches" by the Presidents of the United States of America. First, check out the tech behind the instrument:
And then -- check it out in full action!
The only thing more impressive than the instrument might be these guys' musical chops. Awesome work! And now I have that song stuck in my head...movin' to the country...gonna eat a lot of peaches...moving to the country... ♪ ♫ ♪
