A little while ago I told you about the Axoloti and how much I like it. But because it’s just a bare pcb without casing, I didn’t get to use it in practical context very much. Now I had a little time to design a 3d-printable enclosure. Continue reading “AxoStomp”
This musical browser apps are educational and fun: Chrome Music Lab
Music is for everyone. So this year for Music In Our Schools month, we wanted to make learning music a bit more accessible to everyone by using technology that’s open to everyone: the web. Chrome Music Lab is a collection of experiments that let anyone, at any age, explore how music works. They’re collaborations between musicians and coders, all built with the freely available Web Audio API. These experiments are just a start. Check out each experiment to find open-source code you can use to build your own.
“Sketching digital audio algorithms with the musical playability of standalone hardware.”
With the launch of the Raspberry Pi (RPi) four years ago, I was quite exited about to be able to run my Pure Data patches on a small and affordable unit, to build my own little music mashines. This excitement was a little damped when I realized that:
Pythagoras of Samos was a man with many hobbys. I know him primarily for his experiments with strings and their musical properties. Thats why I call this robotic string instrument “Pythagotron”.
- 2 octaves of pitch range
- fast and precise intonation
- 4 actuators for striking, muting, punshing, damping and shorten the string
- modular and parametric design (OpenScad)
- most parts are 3D-printed or easy to gather
- open source
Definitely worth a look:
This album has really strong moments I encourage you to discover. Since “Mehliana – Taming the Dragon” Mark Guiliani definitely belongs to one of my favorite drummers.

This is a Honey extractor. It is used to fling the honey out of the honeycombs you put in there. There is one Knob to set the speed and a three way switch to make it spin left or right op to stop it.
Do you use Arduino and did ever wonder what the actual difference between Arduino and “real” microcontroller toolchains are and what it takes to use them? Then this Hackaday article is for you!
Dass Bildung Offenheit braucht unterschreibe ich sofort – ich werde dieses Buch trotzdem lesen um so meine Argumentation dafür zu schärfen.
