Noisy Jelly: Sound That Really Wobbles

Noisy Jelly is a prototype made with Arduino and Max/MSP by French design students Raphaël Pluvinage and Marianne Cauvard. With the kit, you can create jelly objects with a mixture of water and agar powder. Once they are molded and hardened, the pieces go on a game board which acts as a capacitive sensor via Arduino pins.

Variables such as the differences in the shapes, the levels of salt concentration and the distance and finger pressure determine the sound of the audio signal that is generated.

No word on whether the team behind it plan on putting these in production it as a sort of game but as you can see in the demonstration video, the packaging looks great and it looks like a cool science project for kids [and big kids] to spend time with learning about sound.
