Final project update

by huaishup @ 11:16 pm 24 April 2011

I am trying to work along my plan and schedule for this final project. Ideally I will finish 3~5 fully functioned drum bots to demonstrate potential combination of music and algorithm.


What I have done:

Spend some time redesigned my own Arduino-compatible circuit board, which is less smaller than the original one and with all sockets and electronic parts on. (1 x 1 inch)

Ordered all parts from Digikey last Wed.

Tried a lot. But still remains some problems:

piezo sensor is really fragile and not stable.

Solenoids are either too weak or eat too much current & voltage.

Batteries are always the problem.

Circuit board never shipped.

Sounds effect.



In Thursday have a working demo with 3~5 drumboxs

Software is hard, hardware is HARDER!

  1. Comments from the crit 4/25:

    whoaaa its really cool how the box can copy your tapping.

    Good luck with the rest of the work, might be tough to get it all together by Thursday but I still like the idea. Glad to see you iterating & improving on the original hardware design.

    seems like getting the physical components of this complete will tie it together
