The piano box is a (some­what poly­phonic) paper toy syn­the­sizer with 12 keys, each trig­ger­ing a tone and an LED. The keys are a set of capac­i­tive sen­sors, made of cop­per tape, con­trolled by an Arduino Mega run­ning the CapSense and Tone libraries. The code for this project, writ­ten by Will Byrd and Cata­rina Mota, can be down­loadedhere. Please note that the cur­rent ver­sion of the Tone library has some prob­lems on Arduino 1.0. so it’s best to use ver­sion 23 or ear­lier.

The libraries used are avail­able here:
