NOISY JELLY from Raphaël Pluvinage on Vimeo.

Noisy Jelly is a game created by Raphaël Pluvinage and Marianne Cauvard in which players cook their own musical instruments — jelly, made with water, a few grams of agar agar powder, and some coloring — that are then placed on the game board and, when touched, will activate different sounds.

“Technically, the game board is a capacitive sensor, and the variations of the shape and their salt concentration, the distance and the strength of the finger contact are detected and transform into an audio signal.”

Which is all just a complicated way of saying it’s just really really awesome.
