BeetBox, The Vegetable-Powered Musical Instrument

When music appreciation and tech craft meets creative wordplay, we get things like the BeetBox. Created by Scott Garner, the root-vegetable-inspired musical instrument uses six beets powered by a Raspberry Pi with a capacitive touch sensor. When touched, each beet creates a distinct drum sound. And, when roasted, those same beats make a tasty side dish.
