The clever Audible Colours project looks and sounds incredible

A new project has been featured on Yanko Design this week that combines audio and visual tech to create a pretty and rather clever art installation/music instrument...

The Audible Colours project developed by Hideaki Matsui and Momo Miyazaki connects a canvas to a webcam, so when certain colours are dropped onto it a certain note that corresponds to that colour is played.

Each primary colour has a note and interestingly when you combine two you get different notes and when you apply different sizes of paint you produce different volumes and frequencies.

Check out the video above to see Audible Colours in action, although it may just be an interesting project for now it'll be interesting to see how this kind of tech can be used in the future, particularly for music and gaming.
