Convert a toy piano to work as a midi device and use it with Synthesia

Goal of this project: Convert a cheap toy piano to work as a midi device and use it with Synthesia (http://www.synthesiagame.com/) Other programs that use midi inputs can also be used. Approach: The pushbuttons of the piano are used to make a simple pull-down circuit for the arduino mega. The arduino interprets the keystrokes and sends serial midi data to the pc. Then this data is send to a virtual midi por ...
