Well, the Hackaday Prize final deadline is tomorrow, and I think I've squeezed as much progress out of DrumKid as possible in that time! I thought it would be nice to reflect on how far the project has come since it began.

And that takes us up to today! I'm really pleased with where I've got to, and am excited to complete the V5 PCB design over the coming days. Good luck to all the other Hackaday Prize finalists, and if anyone wants to be kept updated about DrumKid's launch later this year, please go to and sign up my mailing list.
