For the past few weeks, we have been exploring little electronic prototypes powered by little microprocessors.
Today, we will be sharing something different!
It is just a piece of paper, and it is also a toy that generates musical tunes!
When kids play, we try to avoid wires and cables, and electronic devices that emit wireless radiation. The question is whether it is possible to make something interactive without exposing the kids to the electronics? Could we allow kids to draw a piano on a piece of paper, and then start playing REAL tunes on it?
Introducing a paper piano!
And here is how it works

It is just a normal piece of paper. There are no wires attached. There is no wireless radiation, no infrared radiation, no emissions.
But it can generate simple musical tunes!
You do not need to worry that a child may break the piano or spill water on it. If it gets torn up, you may need to draw another one on a fresh piece of paper though.
It is a real world example of applied Computer Vision for a simple fun experiment.
Do you have other ideas that you would like to turn into a working prototype?
