Just a quick announcement: our Tonomat project is still alive and kicking and is currently on display at the Design United exposition (part of World Usability Day events) at the Industrial Design Engineering faculty of the TU Delft. Below are some impressions.

We milled, we painted, we MAXed, connected wires, broke servo’s, and now we’re almost done. Next week will be for testing and finetuning, let’s hope everything works. The excitement is almost unbearable!
We’re currently very close to assembling the Tonomat. Here are some pictures of the playing tube (now with LED’s! ;-)), the baseplate (in which the tokens can stand) and the concept as a whole. Of course that ugly MDF plate will be shiny white!
The Tonomat 2.0, (almost) everything transparent!
The playtube now has LED’s that follow the rhythm of the current track. Funky!
The MDF baseplate has nicely-milled slots for the tokens. The previous concept had a large bowl to hold the tokens; this way they are much more visible and accessible for the users.
