Team members: Will Elswick, James Savage

Executive Summary

Our project will use Bluetooth to communicate with several vibration sensors or accelerators. These sensors will be attached by the user to everyday objects like books or a table top and the Beagle Bone Black will use the sensors' outputs to play sounds. In this way, a user can play the drums, bongos, maracas, et cetera without a drum kit or other bulky equipment.

So far nothing works--we haven't started yet!

End with a two sentence conclusion.


If you have hardware, consider Small Build, Big Execuition for ideas on the final packaging.
