Modular sound toys

Modular sound toys


Designed for preschoolers, these Interlocking sound cylinders are loaded with samples via software and can be used individually or combined in stacks. Hack/bend-ability seems an obvious potential here but beyond that it’s an appealing take on physical sample sequencing.

    That’s a cool idea. I’ve been sketching up a sequencer as a gift for my sister’s one-year-old. I’d been focusing on all-on-one designs so that it wouldn’t break, but modular sounds good too (maybe wireless communication between adjacently placed blocks?)
