The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Cardboard sequencer/synthesizer


This home-brewed instrument uses an Atmega644 and can be programmed through a qwerty keyboard. I love the sweet electroni-singing! [Thanks, Ian.]

    Is that really cardboard? It looks more like coroplast.

    Hey, just to be clear, I submitted the tip, but the synth/sequencer was built by my good friend, Craig Iannello. He’s a hardware hacking genius. :)

    Its like cardboard except plastic.. ppl make tradeshow booths with it. Still pretty flimsy though! I’m no mechanical engineer!

    I really like the music. It’s strange how even though the sound is limited, the music still comes out.
