Read all about a new exhibit that I built at the Children's Museum of Bozeman! The project involved a combination of woodworking, electronics and coding, so I had a lot of fun putting it all together.
O'Reilly Media's Oriole platform provides a rich learning experience by combining video, text and interactive coding widgets. To me, it seemed like the perfect way to teach Arduino, but interfacing with Arduino from a browser is tricky business. Read about how I managed to get a simple example going that includes writing code, uploading it to your Arduino and using your Arduino to interact with widgets on the page, all from your browser window.
Play a tune by touching the various tools in your toolbox! See how I wired up and programmed a MUSE board for an exhibit at the Children's Museum of Bozeman STEAMlab.
A circle of fifths chord progression player powered by an Arduino and some clever circuitry. Turn the dial to adjust which chords in the circle are major, minor or diminished. Hook your device up to a MIDI synthesizer to hear the chords play!
Create your own mouse wheel using a rotary encoder, then use it as a jog wheel for the Pocket NC.
After a late night with my sick son, I purchased some Pedialyte to keep his electrolyte levels up. I wondered how well it conducted electricity and it turned into a science experiment!
MUSE was inspired by the Makey Makey and the desire to make permanent, music focused, Arduino projects with ease.
