‘little boxes’ music box for the iPad by joelle aeschlimann

as a part of her studies at ECALjoelle aeschlimann has created a music box prototype for the iPad. the ‘little boxes’ project consists 

of three separate devices that interact with the tablet to create melodies and animations. replicated to work like the traditional player,
the new digital iteration is constructed using rubber tips from commercially available pens, and a conductive metal crank. 
the adobe air for iOS software recognizes when pressure is applied to the iPad, and when the rotating mechanical movements
are turned by the lever, music and visual content are generated.
