Create a Musical Room

TEDxYouth@Austin, Hackidemia, & high school students built a room you can play like an instrument, and now you can too.
Materials: 2 Makey Makeys, 60 meters of telephone wire, foil, conductive tape
Time: 1 Week
Software: Soundplant

Things to try:
Use anything else that might be conductive! The TEDxYouth@Austin students used things like paintings, a pencil sketch with a heavy graphite line running thoughout, an old TV with conductive tape across the screen, colorful giant splats of conductive dough, bowls, spoons, forks, knives, a bowl of bananas, and more.
