This project sought to innovate a device capable of simulating colour-sound synesthesia for a non-synesthete. Using an RGB colour sensor, it detects a colour and translates the amount of red, green and blue it contains into a sound. A speaker emits a note for each of the three colours, before looping back and re-detecting it. The higher the frequency of each sound, a greater amount of that particular colour has been detected. This project provides us, and potentially others, with a base on which to refine and modify our device, simulate other forms of synesthesia, and further explore this condition.
