The LED Eclipse is like a circular piano that plays sounds by using touch sensors that are located around the perimeter of the device. The LED’s are programmed to light up when a certain button is pressed, enabling a touch sensor. The instrument also has many other uses like playing Simon Says with the user. The instrument also has a very clean and neat design.  The LED’s glow in different colors based on the note played.

This relates to engineering and the world because it is an electronically engineered piano. If this program would be used for other instruments and if they could be electronically engineered then they would revolutionize the musical society as we now it. There would be no need to tune your instruments and it would be easier to play in different styles of music. The colors and flashing lights may also get more kids interested in music. Music can help kids learn more efficiently and can help them think out of the box, if more kids do music then more kids would learn more efficiently and be better thinkers.
