I think it is a very nice “sensor” and in the hands of a young girl or boy you may see a lot of interesting projects coming up.
So YUMMY, @SeventhDwarf! I see lots of interaction possibilities! Can you demonstrate it as a synth input?
thanks for your comment. Unfortunately I have none of the synth bits, yet. However, I could imagine that it might help to make a kind of electronic harp or other string instruments much easier. I believe it should be possible to get these cords in different length ( more than one meter ) and also in different diameters.
