pcomp final: tanpura teacher visual study

what remains:

  1. hack another air freshener since our design uses two scents
  2. find spritzer bottles that work with the air fresheners and let us use our own scents
  3. design box
  4. design touch interface and adjust capacitive touch sensor tolerance to work with wood
  5. determine whether we can run MAX MSP and a microphone off of arduino yun or whether we’ll need to keep a laptop in our system

i collected some images to help with our discussion of the interface design. the first set shows existing interfaces of electronic and analog tanpura teachers.

the electronic interface lacks any reference to the gorgeous wooden instrument it imitates. we’re interested in bringing back some of the warmth of the original instrument in our final design.
