Light Arms activated. I push a ‘soft button’ to change the colors and trigger animations of the addressable LED, whose light is contained and traveling through a 2mm fiber optic cable…

190630 - Multi-Touchpad Playing Synth !

190630 - Multi-Touchpad Playing Synth !

I was able to generate sounds by touching / tapping / pressing each one of the touchpads.

View images below to see how the Paper Touchpad was made.

Tools: Arduino & openFrameworks

Challenge: Drum sounds created noise whereas the synth wav worked beautifully.

Fixed ! with an ‘if’ statement in openFrameworks, saying that ‘if the value is smaller then the current threshold && bigger then the previous && the current file is loaded, do not play !


teensy MIDI instrument

190611 - Apples MIDI Instrument

I’m playing sounds by touching apples. My first MIDI instrument thanks to my friend Khan who sent me this tutorial > http://little-scale.blogspot.com/2017/05/teensy-36-basics-touchread.html

I’m learning how to use MIDI with a Teensy microcontroller and Arduino to make a digital instrument.


voltage divider

190317 - Voltage Divider - Bend Sensor controls LEDs

190317 - Voltage Divider > Sensor to control LEDs

[Elite_video_player id=”1″]

The player above has 2 videos:

They show the tests of the bend sensor affecting the red led.

The first video uses a Flora board by adafruit.

In the second one, I am testing the ATtiny85 which ended up being the chosen microcontroller.


The sketchbook notes shows how the Voltage Divider works.

It ables me to turn the ohm changes from the sensor into voltage for analog reading by the microcontroller.

The process of making an eTextile Bend Sensor.

Conductive thread and fabric are used to capture the change in ohms from the bending.
