Have you ever wanted to play the 1987 classic Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley, but your accordion was out of tune? Never fear, Tune Town is here (or should I say hear).
Rice University's very own Shepherd School of Music, one of the greatest music schools in the United States according to Wikipedia, wanted to hold a Zoom concert to demonstrate their extraordinary skills performing hit songs like Careless Whisper by George Michael, All Star by Smash Mouth, Sandstorm by Darude, Photograph by Nickelback, and the ultimate headbanger Fireflies by Owl City.

However, they ran into a huge problem. Their instruments were all out of tune! Facing this huge catastrophe, Shepherd commissioned Team Z.we11am to build a doohickey to help them tune their instruments.
Look at this photograph, every time I do it makes me laugh.
We came up with Tune Town, a nifty little device that is demonstrated in the video below. It works by changing the frequency of the buzzer according to the rotation of the potentiometer.
Tune Town saved the day! The Shepherd Zoom concert was a smashing success, and Team Z.we11am got a thousand hugs from ten thousand lightning bugs.
With Tune Town, you'll be able to Rick Roll all day long. Because when the years start coming, and they don't stop coming, you'll wish your accordion was in tune.
