French product designer Raphael Pluvinage and food designer Marianne Cauvard have invented a game that allows players to make sounds from jelly. The jellies are formed using gelatin, agar agar powder, water and food colouring - all placed in moulds of varying sizes and shapes. Once set, the jellies are placed on a game board that contains sensors. When the shapes are touched and manipulated, the sensors are triggered and will create different audio sounds. The noise produced is affected by the concentration of salt in the jellies, their shape and the contact pressure.

It’s a fun and appealing concept that will appeal to (and educate) both adults and children. The shapes encourage interaction and experimentation and allow users to explore the notion of sound through something tangible.
