After Michael Tougher received a degree in Product Design Engineering in Glasgow, Scotland, he decided to combine inventing and music to create a new educational toy. His invention, Soundbops, allows kids to compose their own songs without traditional instruments. It is made up of brightly coloured buttons (the ‘bops’) that each play a different musical note when pressed. The buttons can be rearranged or piled on top of one another to create chords. By reconfiguring the bops, children can produce new sounds and create their own songs.
