Make has posted a video of a neat new kit from Adafruit called the Drawdio.
Drawdio is an electronic pencil that lets you make music while you draw! It's great project for beginners: An easy kit with instant gratification! Essentially, its a very simple musical synthesizer that uses the conductive properties of pencil graphite to create different sounds. The result is a fun toy that lets you draw musical instruments on any piece of paper.Shown here is a Drawdio mod called Unruly. How-to Tuesday: Drawdio meets Unruly
