Drawdio Kit Lets You Make Music While You Draw

Drawdio, designed by [Jay Silver], is a fun, simple toy that uses the conductive nature of pencil graphite to generate different sounds. When you use the Drawdio pencil to draw or write, you also simultaneously create music. The entire kit is available for sale at Adafruit Industries, or for the more adventurous, separate components and parts are listed. The circuit is fairly simple and we wonder what other devices people can come up with based on this theme.

  1. Nice! I just got one. Very fun. And not necessarily music
    The site that sells them is very interesting also. They carry kits for a lot of DIY/hack projs we’ve seen on these HaD pages and others: POVs, Game of Life, arduino kits, etc.

  2. Bill Cosby’s Picture pages? Thats what comes to mind. I always wanted one of those pens and you could send away for it in cereal box when it arrived it didn’t make that wonderful sound.

  3. Seriously? I understand boredom, and believe me, I’ve made some stupid stuff when I was bored before, but this is absolutely retarded. It makes sounds that would make any normal person pull their hair out.

  4. This has got to be the worst website I have ever been on. It is so stupid and it is really boring! I am the head critisizer at Critisizer inc. in Bermington. I will visit this website tomorrow and it better be a lot more fun or I can have it shut down.
