Pan Flute Hero
The latest creation in the never-ending collection of “____ Hero” instruments is this Raspi-infused pan flute , built by [Sven Andersson] and his team at the 2013 WOW Hackathon. The flute itself consists of varying lengths of bamboo from a local flower shop, cut short enough to be hand-held while still hiding the Pi from the front side. In the spirit of other ‘Hero’ instruments, the pan flute has no real musical functionality. Each pipe houses what appears to be an electret microphone breakout board , which they kept in place by sealing off the end of the pipe with glue.
