Twinkle StarduinoTrying out the accelerometer on Twinkle

An interactive musical artwork, constructed from a Lilypad Arduino, conductive thread, buzzer, accelerometer and felt. I created Twinkle Starduino at MusicHackday 2009 to challenge what a typical artwork could do, this work at first appears to be an image of a charming pussycat, but when switched on the pussycat plays a tune and her eyes flash – pick her up and move her around and the tune and pitch changes.

To find out more about how I made Twinkle Starduino, please see my blog post.
