Reactive Drums - The Final Product

These are the drums as they appeared tonight at the Indianapolis Museum of Art Winter Solstice Celebration.  The weather was full on suck, but the drums still consistently drew a crowd.  Four of us from Dorkbot Indy made the project happen, +Tom Streit and +Jordan Munson did the heavy lifting getting the drum shells made, heads mounted, and everything looking cool. +Brandon Ferguson wrote all the code, and I put the electronics together.

Short Test Video of Reactive Drum Project

This is a short test of the reactive drums project I've been working on the past month with three other guys from Dorkbot Indy.  Tom and Jordan built the drums, Brandon wrote the code, and I designed and built all the electronics.  We made four drums from 12 inches in diameter to 24 inches and they were all delivered to the Indianapolis Museum of Art this week.
