Step 1: "Build a Piano" Educational Electronics Kit
This project is a complete "open source" package for educational purposes aimed at anyone with no previous experience with electronics from the age of 13 and up that includes a beginner's electronics kit with over 40pcs, full step by step color printed instructions and accompanied with a 30 minute learning video that explains everything about this kit and how it works, a step by step walk through for reference, a demonstration video for the music sheet included, a basic troubleshooter.
This kit is a complete product.
All the materials can be found at http://BuildAPiano.xoftc.com and on the xoftc.com YouTube channel.
In this video I explain the basic production processes and assembly of the kit and provide tips on how to go about reproducing this kit at your own home with no special tools.
This kit is very low cost and provides very high value as a build project for introduction to techniques and methods, learning the basic principals of electronics and music at work and eventually function as a complete product/toy built from scratch (generic materials easily recognizable in other setups over all).
Feel free to make use of the kit and the materials under the terms of usage and I hope that you will like it. More projects to come in the future.
