What strikes your mind when you hear the word jelly? Colour, sweetness, softness and that tangy structure which pops up and down but have you ever heard of a jelly that makes noise? Yes, that’s right this jelly is colourful, available in different colours and makes a very sweet noise. Also, when you combine all these jellies together, they give out different tones of music. So, press them differently each time and you have a different music at your service. This is called Noise Jelly.
Named quite aptly, Noisy Jelly is a prototype designed by Raphael Pluvinage and Marianne Cauvard. You can make these differently shaped jellies at home by using your own set of agar powder, colouring and different moulds. So whichever design or size you want, make them easily at home. Pink, blue, green, yellow; name it and you have it at your home. If you are wondering how to make these noisy enough, read on. After 10 minutes of having made them, gelatin in these jellies solidifies. This can be placed on a capacitive sensing game board.
Now when you touch the jelly, it will create different sounds. You must understand that these jellies transmit audio signals that are based on the variation of jelly shapes and sounds you make. So, one jelly can make a different sound from another because of it being bigger or denser. Isn’t it cool how you can make different sounds by just pressing onto hand-made jellies? Also if your jelly is at a longer distance from the object will it make a different sound in comparison to when it’s placed much nearer. Distance, contact, shape and size will determine what music it will produce. Make a set for yourself and create a unique music instrument.
