Adafruit Industries has a new kit called Drawdio, it’s makes music as you draw. It reminds a little bit of Bill Cosby’s picture pages! You can get the kit hereLimor writes-

Originally designed by J Silver, when I first saw the Drawdio at Maker Faire I knew it would be a great project for beginners: A lot of fun with instant gratification! Essentially, its a very simple musical synthesizer that uses the conductive properties of pencil graphite to create different sounds. The result is a simple toy that lets you draw musical instruments on any piece of paper.

For more information, see the Drawdio kit page. Full kits are in the shop now, or you can build your own from the schematics and parts list on the website.


It’s also an open source hardware project, which always makes us happy – I think this will be a fun kit for workshops with kids to teach them about electronics.
