I’ve been meaning to cut this out and see what it actually looks like but I haven’t gotten to it as yet. I like the idea of paper model synths, and whilst foldify is an excellent app for general making of paper models it isn’t as good for synths. Really it just needs one or two templates to deal with keyboards and it would be amazing.
I hope the people at Foldify listen up.
With some of the modules in my molecule synth there are multiple inputs but none of them are labelled, so I thought I’d label mine up to make it easier to use. This is actually twice as much fun as I get to use a label machine too.
The only downside is that I can’t get the code for the MIDI module to load. I’m sure it’ll get sorted soon enough though.
Having never done this before it was a real experience. Very different and I certainly learnt something new.
It’s only fair to say that I’ve loved the Shruthi-1 since I got it. So I thought I’d post some experiments I’ve enjoyed making using the Lemur controller for iPad.
I’ve posted this over at PalmSounds but I really like this and it’s kind of a fun thing to be doing with old and new tech all in one place.
I found this stuff at the V&A Digital Design Weekend. It’s great fun to use and the card kit is excellent. For £10 (I think) you get three cards and all the components to make them into little electronic greeting extravaganzas. What more could you want?
The actual conductive ink is sticky stuff and requires a little patience, but it’s worth it for the finished product.
Another track from my long awaited collection. I need to make some progress with this lot soon.
I’m really intrigued by the idea of physical objects interacting with the real world, which is why I decided to get a Sphero ball. It’s a very interesting device, and there are a few apps that work with it, including especially Shapesynth, which makes some amazing sounds.
So I’m just getting started now on this, and starting to think about how I can use Sphero in a variety of different settings.
