This is a list of twenty arbitrary challenges for people who are learning to create using a tool like Processing, Quartz Composer, or the like.
This is my tutorial for using Processing with the OSCemote iPhone app.
I made a couple simple demos for the VIS145A students at UCSD to show how we can use an iPhone as the interface to Processing sketches.
Teach your baby to be a hip hop producer early. This is a MIDI drum kit that I made using a microcontroller and another $2 find at Savers.
I made this keyboard from a $1 toy that I bought at Savers. I made some changes to the electronics including pitch control, a 555 timer circuit that adds extra resistance in secret places, a speed control for the timer, 1/4″ output jack, and a touch-contact for good measure. I fabricated the case from cold-rolled steel and acrylic.
Just a quick experiment to show that the NESpad library I wrote for the Arduino microcontroller actually works. An NES Advantage joystick acts as a mini MIDI drum pad.
I wrote this library, called NESpad, for anyone who wants to interface an NES game pad with the Arduino microcontroller. I also made an SNES library (SNESpad), but I haven’t tested it with an actual SNES joystick.
My stylish project amp, in all its monophonic glory…
I’ve been trying to make music and noise from electronic gadgets and components. I wanted to make an amplifier that I could accidentally fry and not be upset about, so I made this one from the “Hit Guitar” that I found at Savers.
