The finger drums are designed to be with visible, audible and touchable functions.

It is an aesthetically artistic item connected with visual sounds on Arduino and Processing. Soohyun and I made this for a person who likes to play sounds or perform with a screen. This can be so easy to play. The function is able to play 4 different drum sounds. I used a LilyPad Arduino board and conductive threads on a glove. The thumb will be “- (ground)” and other 4 fingers will be “+(pins)” circuits.

My thumb connected with “Ground (-)” and my 4 fingers connected with digital pins (+): Pin 5, 7, 9 and 10.

Step 3: Sewing a LilyPad with a normal thread for attaching on the glove.

Step 4: ewing conductive threads on each finger to the LilyPad.

In this project, I focused on an aesthetic design. So, I sewed conductive threads to invisible ways. Normally, when people make a kind of LilyPad gloves, they sew outer surface. I spent a lot of time in this section.

Step 5: Covering the LilyPad with a button.

I don't want to see the LilyPad directly as well. So, I covered!

Step 6: Sewing a pink mini LED on the part of the wrist. When (+) and (-) meet each other, the mini LED lights on. I sewed ground and Pin 2.

Step 7: Testing on Arduino and Processing.

The coding parts were created by Soohyun Park, who is developer and my best friend in Parsons.
