Barcodes as notes

February 21, 2011 § 7 Comments

Imagine a piano, whose keyboard is composed by barcodes instead of the black and white keys and music is made by placing these barcodes in different order. It gets a little bit confusing, doesn’t it? Well, let me explain it a bit further.

Barcode piano does exist and aims at helping children understand the notion of barcodes. Through a wooden interface, children have the opportunity to play with specific barcode bricks and practically “assemble” sounds, when combining them on the Barcode piano.

Barcode piano was created by Marco Triverio, Hao-Ting Chang, and Helle Rohde Andersen at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design, and was first exhibited in Copenhagen.
