    In the fall of 2015 wondered – what could our members invent that would enable and extend the ability to manipulate audio – whether from a musical instrument or voice or recordings or the sounds in the space around them? 15 Challengers were selected to receive a free kit, featuring the BeagleBone BlackBeagleBone Black. There were many great submissions for final projects, but in the end we narrowed selection to three finalists.
