A new playground experience provided by the Chicago Park District goes way beyond slides and teeter-totters.

Children who play at so-called "Sonic Playgrounds" can create sounds and music with their actions.

Microphones amplify the playground equipment and sensors translate movement into sound.

The Sonic Playgrounds program runs through September 1st at some parks throughout the city.
