SenseBox is a Raspberry Pi-based system that plays back audio files by detecting objects embedded with Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tags. Users can embed small tags into a variety of physical objects, including 3D printed ones, to use them as audio triggers.
SenseBox is designed as a prototyping platform for use by music therapists, teachers and people with disabilities themselves to build customized and accessible audio interfaces. Please watch the following video about SenseBox:
