BoxBeat Turns Your Desk Into An Instrument

[display_podcast]

BoxBeat is a prototype toy that turns the surface of your desk into a beat making instrument.

It uses contact microphones to detect different sounds from the desk surface, and a simple software patch to trigger audio samples.

“I often find myself tapping away on my desk, and this is a fun and simple way to experiment with those rhythms,” says creator Karl D.D. Willis.
