DIY Drums

I used this project to become familiar with piezo elements. Piezo elements generate voltage when they are hit by a drumstick, which can be measured by an Arduino. The Arduino sends a signal to a computer and the computer plays the sound according to the drum. The same system can also be used with a glove as shown in the video below.

A small note regarding the video: I am not a drummer ;)
