Hacked Keyboard Plays Obama Voice Samples

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  August 1, 2011

If you are a fan of President Obama (or even if you are not a fan of the Pres) you will like the interesting keyboard that has turned up over on Make:. The keyboard was designed by Ashley Lewis and she took Obama’s voice from his inauguration speech and then grabbed choice words from the speech.

Obama Board

Each of the words is bound to one of the keys on the keyboard with the white and black keys getting their own words. The project is called the Obama Board and mostly you can use it to make gibberish sentences. (That might be what some of you already think come out of Obama’s mouth anyway.) Here it is in action, so turn up the volume:

The words seem like you would be able to make a sentence pretty easily, but it’s actually harder than it looks. Lewis says she is a big fan of Obama, even though she didn’t vote. Actually, she can’t vote since she is Canadian.
