Skateboard as a musical instrument

Cool musical instrument based on skateboards!

How does it work?

Sensors responsive to vibration, acceleration and rotation are connected to an interface mounted underneath skateboard. Using the radio protocol, data is transmitted wirelessly from the interface to a laptop computer. Each sensor triggers real-time sounds detected from the movements of the skateboarder and amplified through speakers. As the user engages with this device, universes of unique melodical, rhythmical and often unexpected musical compositions are generated.
