Noisy Jelly

It's like a synthesizer control interface made out of molded jello. "Noisy jelly is a game where the player has to cook and shape his own musical material, based on coloured jelly."

OK, that's just plain neat. Would be a great toy for kids, which makes me wonder how much it costs to make that capacitive plate.

I'm picturing a David Cronenberg movie where the jelly is replaced by vat-grown human organs.

The movie would of course be a Victorian-era period piece.

Oh. My. God. I have a stepson who loves jello more than anything in the world. Is this a thing a person could shop for? Is there a kickstarter? How does this make its way into his life?

There's a mefite who made a jello piano. I should go find that video.

O cool! The local hacklab did this last week! Room 101, the board is just a sheet of wood plus a sheet of foil with with the Arduino doing the capacitive sensing. Check out the PDF linked at the video.
