Jon Payne created his own MPC (Music Production Center). He was inspired by an MPC and the DJ Tech Tools MIDI Fighter and decided to create and build a stand alone project that is a combination of the two. This is a really impressive DIY project. It sounds awesome and looks great.
While Jon describes it as a work in progress, it is functional with more features being planned.
Jon Watte (jwatte on the forum) built an autonomously navigating rover. This awesome rover is built for the outdoors and has individual steering on the 4 corner wheels. Not only can this impressive rover follow a track, but it can climb up stairs as well!
Jon took it to a race early this month and placed 2nd out of 20! Way to go!
Force feedback yokes are about the realistic implementation of trim. Trim adjustments, weight and balance changes, speed, and aircraft configuration all effect the natural resting position of the yoke. When you use a traditional yoke which does not allow this “neutral” position to shift throughout various states of flight, an unacceptable level of realism is lost. This force feedback yoke gives a realistic feel to flight simulation.
The design is open architecture to allow users to customize and update every bit of the software and hardware.
Marcus Olsson built a sound reactive LED jar for a music hack weekend.
He named it “Don’t Look At Me LED” because when turned up to full brightness it’s really hard to look straight at it. That’s what 576 LEDs glued around a 16cm jar will do for you. I love the sound reactive nature of this project as well as the scrolling text feature.
Forum user wolke recently posted about his monophonic guitar synthesizer. This DIY project has an impressive list of features. This is a German language video that demos the cool effects. The unique sounds remind me of spaceage music.
The code for the project is posted on Github https://github.com/wolkstein/GitSynth127
The modified audio library is on Github as well https://github.com/wolkstein/Audio
