Project Concept

This project will allow a user to direct a gun at a color or object and convert it into a sound, which can then be further tweaked via a smartphone interface. The prototype uses off-the-shelf embedded components such as a photodiodes and a bluetooth-enabled smartphone in order to generate sound from RGB content.


Random population studies have determined that 1 in 23 people experience some form of synesthesia, however, there are various different forms a person can experience. This project will allow a consistent source of synesthesia to any user: the conversion of color into sound. Essentially, the user will be able to "hear the rainbow".
