Free idea: rimshot machine

If anybody’s looking for an idea for a project to make with the Spark Core, here’s one that we just came up with that I love but will inevitably never get around to making.

Imagine a “Rimshot Machine” that is a real life drum kit with drumsticks controlled by solenoids. It comes with an app with a big red button that says “RIMSHOT” and if you press the button, the drumkit gives you a solid rimshot:

Particularly good for remote teams, where one team member can make a joke over team chat or a conference call and then activate a rimshot in the other person’s office.

Anybody? Bueller?


Nice :smile:
