Fun stuff: Bananaphone TouchSynth

Playing the Bananaphone
Project details at: http://www.gadgetgangster.com

I was recently inspired by a Kickstart project which used Bananas as sensors to control a video game on a PC.  I’ve done some video game controls using the Propeller in the past, but I thought this would make an interesting synthesizer project.

Parts List:

  • Your favorite Propeller board.  (I used a Quickstart board w/Terminal Module)
  • A couple packs of alligator jumper wires. (Radio Shack)
  • Nine Bananas (8 notes & 1 to snack on)
  • A 220ohm resistor (Radio Shack)
  • An amplified speaker w/connector
  • The spin source archive
