The Octodrum

Me playing the Octodrum

The OCTODRUM is a Midi controller I created in the course “Design of Physical and Virtual Interfaces” at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam. It was my first experience with Arduino code and micro electronics. It’s all built and programmed by myself. Check out some photos of the Process.
