Depicted above is the final prototype of the tun-tun.
Functions are as stated (from top-down):
- Tapping top of head – triggers a beat once
- Pulling of left ear – controls the volume, and triggers the melody once
- Pulling out/pressing hard on tip of tongue – triggers a voice on repeat, pull it out again to switch it off
- Slide the “voice box” up and down – change the pitch of the sound effect
All sounds are recorded in real-life; however, they do not sound melodious when mixed together. New sounds can be input(ed) to replace the current sounds.
Physically speaking, the product stands at my chest-level.
