Glover is a novice maker and was in a position to pull of this mission by outsourcing a lot of the work to ChatGPT and distributors on Fiverr.

One half that Glover designed himself was the customized PCB that acts as a defend for an Arduino Leonardo board. The Arduino handles the synthesis in accordance with the enter coming from the ribbon. That ribbon is definitely two sensors: a SoftPot 500mm-long membrane potentiometer for place and skinny movie strain sensor to measure pressure for aftertouch. These elements match right into a easy however enticing, laser-cut MDF enclosure.
