I am extremely fond of this and I notice that I'm not the only one asking.
Based on the sylocard youtube video. you could perhaps send a link to the project file so we could print it, or pay to have it printed ourselves.[color=Blue][/color]

Hi, I know a lot of people are interested in this, I am unfortunately very busy right now so I haven't had a chance to capitalize on it.

I was speaking to Dubreq (who made the original stylophone) about getting it turned into a real product sold on the shelves, but this is a slow process. Hopefully soon!

That would be really cool. As an engineering student I thought that it would be a great thing to send back to my few music teachers and marching band director that I had throughout school.

I would like to own one as well.
My first thought when I saw it was "What about a piezoelectric speaker?"
A quick search turned up a USB midi host on a tiny PCB.
http://www.hobbytronics.co.uk/usb-host-mini

Would a stack of 2 or 3 cards (a bank of coin cells - 2016 or 2012 for power, or one of those lithium ion credit card power banks) make a full fledged synthesizer possible?

2 minutes later edit:
Wow, I checked out the site. I had no idea you had other projects so similar. I might commission this toy. Youtube just told me 15 minutes ago that I should watch your video.

That depends on what you mean by "full fledged". You would be able to make some sounds at least, but it would probably sound more like a musical greetings card than a synthesizer. To get a decent sound out of a piezo buzzer, you need a fairly high voltage. With 3V the best you can hope for is a rail-to-rail square wave. Or a very, very quiet synthesizer.

Pretty good idea! Haven't tried jlcpcb, i will try it from my default PCB manufacturer Seeed Studio https://www.seeedstudio.com/fusion_pcb.html

Gosh, that's a tough one. Like a spambot, you've registered just to reply with a link. But unlike a spambot, you've gone to the trouble of using fluent English and making the link vaguely relevant!

In honour of you, Jimery, I have altered the forum to stick rel=nofollow onto all hyperlinks. No more blood for the SEO vampires to suck.

And if anyone was wondering, the actual company I ordered the PCBs from was PCBWay.

Any updates? It's been a few months and I can't find any other information within your site. Although I did have a bit of fun exploring.

Unfortunately not. Definitely nothing in time for Christmas sorry.

I did make a new version of the stylocard back in august, I fixed all of the perceived problems with it: it now has hardware USB, better debouncing, a built-in stylus, a reduced number of components on the board, octave jumping and some other midi features, and the connector is now micro-USB, which makes the whole thing slightly thicker, but it seems more people have micro-usb cables than full size extensions.

I can't (officially) sell it yet until it's been EMC tested. Maybe I will have some renewed enthusiasm in January.

Yes I know it is 2019 and about a month and a half away from being 2020
