Lego builders might be interested in a new Lego Drum Machine inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s Tamburo Meccanico. Da Vinci’s Tamburo Meccanico is a mechanical drum machine design that uses music box style cylinders with pins to create drum patterns. Check out the video below to learn more about what you can expect from the project by Lego Master builder Giuseppe Acito, also creator of the Toa Mata Band.
“It consists of a four tracks rhythm machine which mechanically generates the electric impulses needed to trigger the drum synth and the bass-line sync. On the 500th anniversary of Leonardo’s death, this is my personal tribute to his genius who in the late 1400 introduced the first automated musical instrument and the concept of step #sequencer. ”
