Evolution

So we have just had a group meeting and developed our idea for this project. Below are a few quick sketches, to just get our ideas out. We apologize if they are a bit hard to understand, but we should have some  more developed up soon.

So the idea that we are looking into is using glass bottles, sitting in a frame of some sort. The bottles will be filled with different volumes of liquid to alter the noise that is produced when air passes over the top. This air will be produced by human interaction. The sound will then be picked up by a microphone, and will trigger colored LEDs to light up the frosted bottles.

At the moment the overall output will be a light display. However we are discussing other alternatives such as musical instruments or a combination of both light and sound. Below are a few links that we are looking into for parts and code for this idea.
