The local PBS station WFYI came by today to record a short piece on the laser harp project. We spend about 3 hours filming, as it proved tricky to get the lasers to show up properly on camera. Should be on sometime next week…

Laser Harp Mk III (with added WiiMote)

March 23, 2008

It looks like I’ll be doing an interview with WFYI on Monday about the Laser Harp and the sudden popularity of the video on YouTube. I thought I’d better get version III going – using the PixArt sensor on the front of a WiiMote to control expression. Basically sliding your hand along the beam can […]

Got the PAiA Theremax kit last week, got the board assembled in a couple of nights. My soldering skills have really come on in the last year, I would never have attempted direct soldering of IC’s to a board until now…

John Claeys on the Etherwave

March 11, 2008

John Claeys brought his Moog Etherwave over this week to show us all how darned difficult the Theremin is to play… So now the challenge is on, trying to build a Theremin that is easier to play – with linear pitch control, and my signature sharks with laser beams on their heads 🙂
