keyboard cat

This project is an exploration within interactivity, mechanics and animatronics, combining the technology and a handmade object.

Using Processing and Arduino the keyboard of the computer move two independent motors, one of them controls the horizontal movement of the hands, and the other one controls the vertical movement, also every key emits a pre-recorded sound. Therefore, the keyboards in the computer represent a keyboard in the piano, and every time the user press the keyboards on the computer, he/she is also making the cat plays the piano.

The mechanism is made with two servo motors and some pieces of legos.
