British designer Nick Brennan’s Sound Pegs device can turn ordinary household items—shoes, potted plants, paperbacks—into musical instruments. How?
Well, Nick’s device consists of several enlarged wooden pegs, speakers, and a converter that changes the vibrations into a digital signal. Sensors inside the pegs detect when the object they are attached to is struck with a drumstick. Then, the signal is fed through Apple’s Garageband software and amplified by the speakers. (You can watch a video of the Sound Pegs in action here.)
Perfect for an impromptu jam session.
