My final project was an Arduino-powered interactive drum machine fashioned from a traditional cajón. Additionally, the drum machine also served as a controller for a visual component using a Spin Art Maker and solenoids. The goal of the project was to create a audio-visual system that would appeal to children and was likened to a science exhibit installations. The final prototype was achieved using Arduino programming, MAX/MSP, electronics, and carpentry. My contributions to the project included programming, electronics, and overall system design input.
