Maker/musicians Audiobody (AKA brothers Jason and Matt Tardy) built the World’s Coolest Keystroke, which triggers Abelton Live sounds when keys are hit by tennis-ball-actuated Lego strikers!

A sneak peak of our new toy. The world’s coolest keystroke. Combines tennis balls, legos, switches, servos, an Arduino and Ableton Live! We’ll have more video of this awesome gizmo coming soon!

Also, it sounds like the guys will be at Maker Faire Detroit this weekend, so hit them up if you’d like to see their gadget in action.
