Today a Kickstarter project launched that was extremely interesting to me, I’m a huge fan of music and the new ways that you can make it with, and so whenever a cool project launches on Kickstarter I find myself particularly interested in it.
This week a new campaign was launched for a project called dadamachines, which is an automated toolkit that allows you to create sound with the world around you by using a set of robots that can tap, move, and bang, and all with a hackable and open-source backbone that allows you to create a plug & play MIDI-controller and accessories kit that allows anyone to build their own music machines with real world objects as their instrument.
At the center of this toolkit is the automat controller, music creators can plug in their favorite software or hardware MIDI input directly into the controller, as well as up to 12 universal DC outputs to connect a range of machines that will help you to create this music, including, motors, solenoids, and LEDs.
Simply plug & play, no coding or soldering required.
Check out the video below for a closer look.
They are looking for €20,000 in funding (and have already nearly reached that with €18,000 of funding at the time of writing) to get this into production, to get to which, they are offering early-bird backers with various kits for from €89.
You can help them hit that and find out more about the project at the source link below.
