#40 Bike Conveyor

Another fantastic collaborative design, finger number 40 is a combination of two submissions from Place Farm School in Suffolk. Both designs show a conveyor system triggering the key and one combines this with a bicycle. A bicycle is a treasure trove of engineering techniques so we were delighted to see them appearing in these inventions!

The player rides the bicycle and the bicycle chain attached to sprocket which runs a conveyor belt. Pegs/hammers on the conveyor belt rotate around and slide-hit target which moves lever which is tied to the piano interface by a wire rope, and the interface lever plays the key!
