The Haptic Hang Drum, created by CIID, is like an Animusic 3D animated music video come to life.
It’s an experimental instrument, made with motorized sliders, servo motors and hall effects sensors.
The motorized sliders simulate a pump that controls the pressure in the firing mechanism. The motorized sliders simulate the pressure mounting in the spring. When the pressure breaks, the ping pong ball is fired and it strikes one of eight hall effect sensors in the hang drum. This triggers a hang drum note sample in Ableton Live.
