Inductive Pendulum

One of my latest ideas is an evolution of my Proximity Mixer that uses Induction and Proximity to transfer audio signals from a source to a pickup through the air. This version uses an inductor on a pendulum with an audio signal running through it, with a stationary pickup on the base that picks up the audio as it swings past:

In this video, Helen Leigh Steer of Do It Kits fame is controlling the pitch being played with her for kids project that she is developing with Imogen Heap.

I’m planning on a much bigger array of multiple pendulums all swinging at once which should be interesting to see in action!
