Pythagoras of Samos was a man with many hobbys. I know him primarily for his experiments with strings and their musical properties. Thats why I call this robotic string instrument “Pythagotron”.
- 2 octaves of pitch range
- fast and precise intonation
- 4 actuators for striking, muting, punshing, damping and shorten the string
- modular and parametric design (OpenScad)
- most parts are 3D-printed or easy to gather
- open source
