Noisy Jelly

Have you ever wondered what sound jelly makes? Well, now there is a kit that provides you with all the right materials to discover exactly that. The world needs to give a big thanks to Raphaël Pluvinage and Marianne Cauvard for creating the game, Noisy Jelly. Arguably the most fun combo ever, this musical jelly chemistry lab is something that needs to be experienced first-hand to get the full effect. Even though there are children playing with it in the video, you better believe this is a game for all ages.

How does it work you ask? Well, the kit provides you with all the necessary ingredients to create jelly instruments that you shape and color to get the desired sounds. Variations of shapes and salt concentration, plus the strength of finger contact, determine the audio signals that result. Once created, the jellies are placed on top of the game board, which is a capacitive sensor that translates the interaction into sound. According to the creators, “This object aims to demonstrate that electronic can have a new aesthetic, and be envisaged as a malleable material, which has to be manipulated and experimented.” What a fun experiment and pleasantly surprising outcome.

I am a graphic designer and illustrator who never seems to have enough hours in the day. When I am not designing something, it would be safe to assume I am either reading or writing about it. All of my work is made possible by cereal and Johnny Cash songs. See evidence of many sleepless nights in my portfolio at www.bradwoodarddesign.com.
