A great DIY gift for the holidays
This one gadget combines hardware modification, coding, and music production into one customizable focal point.
Use it as a music sampler that can create any beat and make a mix from five tracks. Code your own pocket rave with 121 onboard LEDs, or record your own samples using the built-in MEMS microphone. You could also use Synthia as a learning tool. What a cool way to get your young musician thinking of new ways to edit their sound. Or, use it as a teaching tool for a young STEM learner. It could even be an early coding project with tangible results. Mastering a concept in C++ may be satisfying on its own, but how cool would it be to have the reward for all that work on the computer being a programmed LED light show set to your child’s favorite songs?
