Inspiration

  • Spicy Food
  • A love for music
  • Knowing we could measure stress response based on how spicy food you eat

What it does

Generates music using various skin sensors and leap motion.

How we built it

  • Python
  • MIDI Libraries
  • Arduino
  • Reaper MIDI Sequencer

Challenges we ran into

The Leap Motion was the biggest hurdle. Getting the leap motion to work on our systems and then be able to parse the data was the biggest challenge.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

The various mathematical formulas we derived for transforming the raw data to numbers for output to MIDI

What we learned

MIDI Programming, Music Theory, Interfacing with Arduino and other hardware, and good project management

What's next for Picante

Extrapolate the systems to be abstract enough that others can hook their own sensors and use it.
