The Oplab printed circuit board merges software with music, which is done by using random objects from around the house.
According to DesignBoom, "the Oplab lets you connect things, toys and random junk laying around the house, which interact with any device that produces sound; grab a broken hard drive, rip it apart, hook it up, and use it as a scratchpad." Having this type of technology will be helpful for kids in a number of ways. For one, it promotes their creative side, putting together a circuit board from various materials. Secondly, these individuals are then able to create music with the device, again promoting creative initiatives that will hopefully help children later on in life. Who knew something so beautiful could come out of unused toys from kids' younger years?
