BeetBox Drum Machine: Beets That Make Beats

by Lambert Varias

Self-described maker of things Scott Garner made a drum machine out of beets and a Raspberry Pi. It works like most drum machines and synthesizers, except instead of buttons or pads, the user touches the root crop to trigger the drum samples.

As you can see Scott focused on hiding the electronic side of the BeetBox around and inside its wooden enclosure, which makes its function all the more surprising.

Check out Scott’s blog for more information on the BeetBox. These days we love to flaunt our gadgets and technological achievements, but as electronic components get smaller and better, I think we’ll see more and more of these explorations – and finally actual products – that return to a more natural aesthetic or form of interaction. I would love to live in a world where we highlight the beauty of nature and have electronics that blend seamlessly with our environment. Though in a way that’s kind of creepy as well.
