iSticks (with iSteelPan and iTaiko)

  

Team

  • David Ayman Shamma

 

Description

 

Using some conductive fabric and metal rods, you can drum on any modern touch device. There is an instructable to tell you how to make your own.  

 

I built two apps for the sticks:  iTaiko (for the iPhone) and iSteelPan (for the iPad).  The steel pan app also has a whack-a-mole mode to teach you how to play.

In the iSteelPan app, the accelerometer is used as a proxy for pressure (softer strikes are somewhat attenuated).
