anybody can borrow me an ARDUINO MEGA for an installation at the teufelsberg listening station?? i will need it until next sunday. in berlin. merci!
4  Using Arduino / Audio / transforming interfering singnals into sound on: August 28, 2012, 08:10:05 am
hey there,

for an installation I am going to tape a huge copper tape circuit on a wall that works as an interface to control various devices by touching/approaching the sensors. one end of the copper tape goes to the sensor, the other one to the arduino. I want to connect 10 sensors and some leds wit the arduino in a circuit of circa 2x4m. imagine it like this but much bigger: http://hlt.media.mit.edu/?p=2505. now: the idea is to transform the interfering signals of this circuit into a drone-like sound. how would you scan the interfering signal to an audio jack so that I can Input it into effects pedals etc??
5  Community / Workshops and Events / Berlin: 25. & 26.08. Workshop: BUILD YOUR OWN MIDI-CONTROLLER WITH ARDUINO on: August 13, 2012, 06:59:52 am
Check:

http://www.symbioticcube.com/?p=228


Where & When:

*25. & 26.08.2012
*14:00
*Der Kanal @ Weisestraße 57, Neukölln, Berlin

The idea:

A two-day Workshop (25.08 + 26.08) for Live-Performers, Audio -and Visual Artists, Producers, Designers etc. You will learn how to sketch, build and programm a MIDI controller that meets your individual workflow and allows you to individualize your artistic expression. Arduino is a revolutionary open-source single-board microcontroller, designed to make the process of using electronics in multidisciplinary projects more accessible. It can be combined with many sensors like potentiometers, faders, knobs, switches, touch sensors, pressure sensors, vibration sensors, infrared sensors, accelerometers, capacitive sensors etc. etc. etc. Whether you want to control parameters with body movements or just need a personalized fader bank: Anything is possible! The Midi-implementation takes place onbard and can be outputted via Midi-Jack or USB.

The programm:

- Introduction to the Midi communications protocol
- Introduction to the Hardware: Arduino board and sensors
- Introduction to the programming language
- Building a standard Midi-Controller
- Sketching and Building your personal Midi-Controller

You will need:

Thats it. Just post me. And maybe you can help me out one day with some coding^^

great, thank you all for you ideas. i will have to figure out now if I want some really sophisticated solution with with a lot of coding and stuff or just to try to make it as simple as possible. conductive paint would definately be a pretty simple and convenient solution. but If it is possible to create a whole metal sculpture out of a square (or rectangular) base surface, capacitive sensoring would probably be possible. (it would be like a folded touchscreen). it is also a very "organic" way of sensoring, considering that the nervous system also works with electrical impulses &  fields.

well, the metal-surface I am going to use is already conductive.

the question is rather how to detect -

1)if it got touched (simple capacitive sensing)

2) where exactly the three-dimensional surface got touched (the main problem!).

mabe also 3) how it got touched (http://www.disneyresearch.com/research/projects/hci_touche_drp.htm)


The second and third task cannot be performed onboard, I will trie to use PureData fot that.

Thanks for replies!

Hi!

I was just trying to research how to make a three-dimensional object completely touch sensitive without using external devices like hd-cameras or infrared cameras. The object is made of metal and completely conductive. Capacitive sensors? Piezos? Any idea?

My aim is to built a sculpture with artificial intelligence that interacts emotionally and sensually with the observer. The touch sensibility would be an important element amongst other forms of intelligence and emotion tracking.

This is the whole project: http://vvvv.org/forum/community-project

Thank you in advance for your help!!
