The Square(wave) Box

An experiment with sound generating device, fitting as a hand-held gizmo, and constantly generating two sqaure waves. This device was made as an academic project, in collaboration with Yasser Ansari and Daniel Arce. We wanted to build a motion-controlled hand-held synthesizer. The end result was a little unstable, but gave a fun playful tactile and sonic experience. Future development can make it a performance tool, utilizing the motion sensing feature for dance or theater.
