Often our most satisfying interactions with technology come naturally, like pinching to zoom on a iPhone or using a Wii console. How else can we use our existing interactions with objects in new and unexpected ways, and surprise and delight the user while doing so.
The musical foosball table allows users to make music while playing foosball or vice versa. The winner needs to create something that sounds good as well as score the most goals. This is a concept for a digital version, the music is controlled by acceleromoters and motion sensors in each bar. Tone would be controlled by the rotation of each handle and pitch by the forward and backward movement. I have also created a lo-tech version with percussion instruments attached to the table itself.
