Music Man: Nick Brennan’s Sound Pegs

Househappy —  March 18, 2014 — Leave a comment

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.
