SlipperyBrick: iPad Controlled Drum Machine
2014-05-30 3:05pm -07:00T Visit SlipperyBrick


Hit The BeatsHere is one more thing to hook up to your iPad to help entertain the kids this summer. It’s called “Hit the Beats” by digital media researcher and graphic designer Lorenzo Bravi.

This device connects to an iPad and uses MIDI to turn the beats from a drum machine iPad app into a rhythm section in your house. The great thing about “Hit the Beats” is that you can experiment with absolutely anything to make sounds. All that needs to be done is placing the different items on the wooden platforms that have actuators hidden inside which then vibrate to create sound. So, a handful of M&M’s, some dry pasta, and plastic cup may be all it takes to make the next big hit.
