Autistic people tend to have symptoms that aren't as obvious and we tend to ignore them, thinking they're just introverts. I hope my design can make more people aware of autistic people, and also hope to give autistic children a chance to express themselves through music through inner world. Music therapy has always been a very effective method, it is divided into two categories, one is passive music therapy, that is, listening to music, and the other is active music therapy, which is related to allowing children to make music by themselves and through to express music. And that's exactly what I thought. The inner world as a whole consists of two parts, the recording part on the left and the instrumental part on the right. The instrumental parts are modular, they are seadrum, kalimba and a small ukulele, and children can express themselves by combining instruments as they wish and creating their own music. On the left side, the chip can realize the function of recording and playback, and at the same time you can adjust the volume and listen with headphones (if you want to enjoy your personal world).
