Hackers: Wizards of the Electronic Age
I feel very tired after a 0730 - 0100 day debugging this fun little proof of concept piece for clear channel. Back on it tomorrow as well.
More information at a later date-r.
Today I have started working with python’s serial connection to the arduino.
This is a basic LED control test. The python/Arduino equivalent of the ‘blink’ sketch.
It may not look like much because it isn’t. However It’s a step into Python I’m sure to use on a daily basis.
I’m going to connect it to Gmail and a few other services I use so that I don’t have to keep logging on to get notification of messages. Instead I will build more interesting triggers. Like blink(1) but not totally pointless.
My new toy.
When Arduinos/Programming change from a hobby to an occupation, I need a new hobby. In May myself and some friends are cycling from London to Paris.
I quit smoking a couple of weeks ago, cut out dairy and started training. I bought this bike from ebay to fix up and ride.
Looking forward to it and enjoying it.
It’ll be off the piano the second we get the thing tuned.
Data Viz: You’re Doin’ it Wrong
I’ve just started working with NodeBox to add some animation to my HTML. I decided while I’m at it I will practice some data visuals. I found this video, it’s two years old but hardly viewed so I thought I would share. It’s quite funny.
New Raspberry Pi! Soon to be a smartphone controlled home stereo. (at home)
Re: Sound Bottle
An electronic sound sampler in a bottle which constructs music from the sounds you give it, by Jun Fujiwara - video embedded below:
This is a music medium that can reproduce a recorded voice as music. It makes a database of sound sources that is managed and used as formal and automatic repetitions, and forms a music medium of the day. I felt something missing in the habitual use of music reproduction media, so I thought to create an interactive music medium that changes. By using everyday voices as sources of music, the sounds that are heard all the time every day carry infinite possibilities and help us reaffirm the enjoyment of music. I hope people can experience their own music.
