Community Hall of Fame Pick: Human Synth

Makey Makey yourself into a musical human cyborg!

April 27, 2015

Liza Stark has turned herself into a walking instrument with her Human Synth project.  Thanks to the Makey Makey, some conductive fabric and thread, and her own ingenuity, Liza can compose and choreograph at the same time!

With the Makey Makey, you can make a touchpad out of anything conductive.  Watch how Liza activates bits from the Synth Kit when she touches her hand between two conductive touch pads.

 

She holds the circuit together with gaffers tape on the front and back of the bits and sewed the Makey Makey to her friend’s hoodie with conductive thread and touch pads she designed herself!

Visit Liza’s Human Synth project page for more pictures and detailed tips on how to sew your own wearable instrument.
