The BeagleBoard Bullroarer is inspired by one of the most ancient musical instruments.

How it works

The hack attempts to bring the bullroarer into the digital domain. We are using the BeagleBoard with BeagleRT and reading sensor data from the TinkerKit accelerometer. The user can then swing the instrument the same way as its ancient predecessor controlling sound synthesis with position and velocity.
