Buying Choices
Via emh203 Its not clear whether this is made by emh203 to be used by kids, or he just got his hands on one to mess with, but I like the idea that it can be powered by hand crank. Looks pretty robust and should last, but you can never underestimate the destructive power of children.
"Kid" powered "Drum Panel/Synthesizer" for Playgrounds. "Buttons" are simple regions of plastic shaped in circles with vibration sensors. A wavelet analysis bank is used to separate "hits" in a specific location from random structural vibrations and hits that may have happened elsewhere. It also has a cool voice/rhythm record mode.
