Keys of Learning

This is my Fourth Year Design project at the University of Waterloo. It's been 8 months in the making, and is due in March. The goal is to provide a better learning mechanism for kids trying to learn how to play the piano. The solution consists of an embedded tablet and Arduino board to process mistakes and show corrections.

Pictured below is the custom shell I'm building to hold the piano. Once it has been built it will be stained either red or blue (or another eye catching color). The main blocker at the moment is installing electromagnets into the keys to actuate their movement (similar to a player piano) for teaching purposes.
