Ranjit Bhatnagar created a stone sound sculpture that responds to the settling of its stones and the weather by playing sounds. This beautiful sculpture uses sensors for pressure, humidity, temperature, and barometric pressure to collect data and send it to a drone synthesizer, making the sculpture feel alive with sound.
We published a video on with some tips on soldering header pins on to your Teensy board.
A couple of tips to remember when soldering header pins to your board:
1 – You MUST solder the pins. Setting the Teensy on the header pins without completing the soldering will not work.
2 – Use a breadboard to keep the pins straight and stable when soldering
3 – Leave the soldering iron on the pad for a moment after you solder. This will bring all the components – the pad, the header pin, and the solder up to the same temperature so they will cool together to form a proper molecular bond.
John Van Strien and team have created an interactive light and sound responsive sculpture called PETT Plant.
This beautiful work of art can be programmed custom animations from and Android app. It also has a sound responsive mode where the color of each stem modulates like a rainbow graphic equalizer.
PETT Plant also comes pre-programmed with several brainwave entrainment sequences. In entrainment mode, PETT Plant will pulsate at specific frequencies to help move you into brainwave states conducive to inducing sleep, meditation or increasing alertness.
Thomas Hudson and a group of people at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) have gotten into the Halloween spirit early with this freaky shaking haunted mansion. The house is made of cardboard with some miniature skulls, bats, and cats laser cut out of plastic. Thomas added lightning and sound effects as well as making the house shake. This spooky house is an awesome prop to kick off the Halloween season.
Wolfgang Höhne submitted his video wall project that he recently made. The field where his football club plays it can be difficult to know the score and time remaining. Wolfgang created a video wall to display this information. It’s remotely updated by the announcer to keep spectators informed on the game. Not every field is equipped with large signboards to display match information. This project is a great way to solve that problem.
