Scrapyard Challenge: Electric Pigeon




IMG_6109 IMG_6123


My partners, Jimmy Tang and Yuchen Zhang, and I conceived the idea of creating a heavy metal pigeon.  We used a paper mache piegeon with pieces of conductive tape that will play different notes when a conductive glove “plays” them, like a keyboard.  The glove was made of mesh with wires underneath that connected the thumb, which would transfer current to all four fingers and make the sound.  Ultimately, the pigeon didn’t work likely because of poor connection in the glove.
