After hiding two speakers, an Arduino and control buttons behind the cuff buttons, the results were quite successful, for example:
With a litte change in the code all sorts of tunes or effects could be created, so click here to get started. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
If you're new to Arduino, the first step is a solid board for your projects - our Freetronics Eleven - the Arduino-Uno compatible with low-profile USB socket, onboard prototyping space and easy to view LEDs:
