How gardeners get down: Beet Box [video]


Beets usually get a raw deal when it comes to being picked out of the grocery aisle, so Scott Garner decided to give them an image overhaul with a little help from technology.

BeetBox uses six beets connected to capacitive touch sensors to play the drum beats samples on a Raspberry Pi, and an audio amplifier and handmade wooden enclosure he built himself.

We’ll assume he used beets because it was either that or letting them rot in the bottom of the veggie crisper , and there’s nothing fun about cleaning out the brown slime.
