Musical Boxes for the ipad

July 31, 2012

Get more out of your ipad with this cool prototype music box by Swiss design student Joelle Aeschlimann. Little wooden boxes complete with a metal crank, interact with the tablet to create interactive kaleidoscope like images accompanied by melodies.

“Replicated to work like the traditional player, the new digital iteration is constructed using rubber tips from commercially available pens, and a conductive metal crank. The adobe air for iOS software recognizes when pressure is applied to the iPad, and when the rotating mechanical movements are turned by the lever, music and visual content are generated.”

Very cool. What do you think?
