Pythagotron

PythagotronPythagoras 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”.

It features:

  • 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
