I built a set of wind chimes using my Makey Makey (arrived yesterday!). I used Max/MSP to convert the keyboard inputs to MIDI notes and used a simple synth to produce chime tones. I wrapped some cutlery in foil to make it more conductive; forks as key inputs, knives as the ground.
Electric Wind Chimes using Makey Makey (Arduino) and Max 6. Hopefully this will be the first of many inventions
