“Musical Paint Brushes” are a simple adaptive controller that offers many therapeutic benefits. Some of those benefits include improving fine motor coordination, grasp, visual motor coordination and more. To use “Musical Paint Brushes”, a user paints on wet paper to control an activity. One such activity is allowing the user to play a musical note with each stroke of paint. A user can also control multiple notes by connecting multiple brushes to the Makey Makey.
