Melodic Feet / electronic musical instrument

Melodic Feet
Melodic Feet

"Melodic Feet" is an innovative electronic musical instrument. The player does not need to touch the instrument, to play the melody you can move and dance on the side of the instrument freely. There is a number of distance sensors in the tube of this instrument, these devices are able to measure distance between themselves and the foot, these data are processed by different settings in the microcontroller and then transmit to loudspeakers to make different timbres. "Melodic Feet" may be shortened from outside to inside, so it is easily transported.
