A mechanical music box, activated by placing marbles and magnets and little pins on a rotating disc.
The marbles activate the bend sensor, connected to Synth bits, the magnets activate the reed switch connected to the MP3 player with different sounds and the light sensor activates the servo, ringing the bell.
By variating the number and place of the marbles, the number and place of the magnets, the number and place of the little pins on the side of the disc, the holes on the disc, the sounds on the MP3 card, the speed of the disc, the settings of the Synth bits and finally the position of the bend sensor you can create zillions of noises!
Play it again Sam !
