The Voltage Slammer

The Voltage Slammer V1 The Voltage Slammer is not only a mechanism for controlling circuit bent electronics but is additionally a platform for assisting in the activity of circuit bending. This project is part of an ongoing exploration in controlling circuit bent toys, video game consoles, and instruments with Arduino powered interfaces. The Voltage Slammer…

Chroma-Temporal Surveillance Bot

According to the book series The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, written by Douglas Adams, 42 is “the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything” as calculated, over 7.5 million years, by the mammoth supercomputer Deep Thought. When faced with the answer to the ultimate question, the beings whom constructed Deep…

Symbiotic SNES

Inside a clear acrylic box resides two SNES controller circuit boards (no plastic buttons or enclosures), an Arduino MEGA and eight LED’s. The Arduino intercepts buttons presses from the two input controllers and performs a logic operation on the control messages before passing the data to a unmodified host SNES console. This SNES/Arduino project seeks to…

Computer Music

Computer Music is a mechatronic ensemble of floppy disk drives (FDD), hard disk drives (HDD), stepper motors, and Compact Disk Read Only Memory (CD-ROM) drives which are controlled by a MacBook Pro through four Arduino microcontrollers. The pitched FDDs and CDROMs are amplified using single-coil guitar pickups. The HDD spindles continuously spin creating a source of…

Digital Rain

Digital Rain is a data driven installation which explores the crossroads of generative music, emergence patterns, data sonification, and technology driven systems of expression. 192 electromagnetic relay switches, broken out into twenty-four units of eight, are arranged in a grid and mounted on the gallery wall. The relays are orchestrated by six Arduino Megas which…
