The Meowmeter was a very ambitious project for myself and my project partners, Hanna and Megan. The assignment was to create a musical instrument using sensors, buttons, gages, etc. Our plan was to create a music box with a button layout that conveniently fits the left hand, because most instruments don’t cater to left handed people. The sounds were supposed to be that of cat meows, which the person playing the instrument directs using the buttons, over a beat track. However, this project was a little too ambitious for our skill set. The instrument worked only briefly, but ended up being unsuccessful despite our best efforts and a few extremely long nights trying to perfect it. However, we were all very proud of this project, as we DID have it functioning at one point, and we poured a lot of time and effort into it.
