Musical shirt from toy keyboard

musical_shirt

[mikamika] has put together a great tutorial on how to build this musical shirt. The whole process is covered, from taking apart the toy keyboard to laying out the circuit and creating the fabric switches.  He used the same method as [plusea] for the fabric buttons and conductive thread for most of the connections. It seems as though he has actually taken [plusea]‘s wearable shirt project and added some polish. His looks good enough, he might even be able to make it through an airport.

  1. It’s be great if he worked some bend sensors in there somewhere to modulate the sound with, or a wearable slider of some sort.

  2. I think by “Wearable Shirt Project” you guys mean “Wearable Piano Project”. Last time I checked, most shirts were wearable. ;)

    Regardless, this is still really cool. Nice article!

  3. Hi.
    My PC worked not correctly, too much mistakes and buggs. Please, help me to fix buggs on my computer.
    I used Windows7.
    With best regards,
