Piezo Sensor Prototype

Uncategorized — jk @ 12:17 am

Recently I completed a collaboration with Dakotah Konicek for the Tough Art Artist Residency at The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. In conjunction with this project, for the MTI class I attempted to make a Piezo sensor that could be used to both sense sound and activate a pump. This video documents this project, in part, as well as the Piezo microphones I built for this project and my attempt at building an amplifier that could be input into an Arduino sensor and output as sound.

Above is the final piece at The Children’s Museum.

 

Here’s excellent advice on building Piezo Preamps on Alex Rice’s website.
