This phone application allows anyone to create virtual musical instruments using post-it notes and found objects. Inventor Yuri Suzuki created the AR Music Kit so people can make their own instruments using a smartphone, paper notes and any object.

Developed in partnership with the Google Data Arts Team, the platform turns your device into a DIY instrument with the help of a few pieces of paper. Your smartphone camera picks up the sequence on the paper notes and the device plays them back. By sticking the notes to a random item, you can mimic other instruments or even place them on a turntable. The virtual musical instruments offer a creative platform to make music in an experimental and fun way.
