*We were inspired by the following project, and looked at the code for it, but ended up developing our own. However, if you are interested in making an umbrella that plays musical notes due to press, this is a great page: For more information about the 4051 chip, used as a multiplexer or demultiplexer, refer to Arduino playground`s page at We did
