My Final Project: ‘Singing Bowl’ Rhythm Game

I want to create a rhythm game using Tibetan Singing Bowl as the instrument.

Concept Draft

Inspiration References

Here is a video of playing a singing bowl with water inside, which would create faraday wave. It is visually stunning while featuring calming sound. Although I can’t guarantee that I would create this outcome but it gives me inspiration to use this instrument.

For detecting different knock sounds, I may use this arduino built-in example and this tutorial video of making a knock detector. The sensor is expected to be installed in the bottom of the bowl. Another solution might be using the acceleration sensor as knocking detector. However, I haven’t figured out how to detect the other motion of the drumstick rubbing against the rim of the bowl yet.
