I am 36 year old Maker. My health condition don’t allow going to work -so I have to spend my time with inventing things. I am interested in (and building) little Robots which ‘sense’ their environment and follow distinct parameters. I constructed a automatic Pet-fountain and I also plan building things like a WiFi controlled cat snack “turret” / food dispenser. My second favourite thing is music making. I have made a Synthesizer out of an Arduino and going to build a step sequencer for it. But I was also dreaming of a midi controller which uses different sensor Variables to change MIDI values (Accelerometer/Lightsensor/Temperature and even magnetic orientation could be used) So it could be possible to control left/right mix of Channels by pointing in different directions or changing FX parameters like Echoe amount by blewing warm air onto the temp-sensor… etc. With 2 of them you could use 1 tied to each Hand to have control over at least 12 different parameters - a new kind of intuitive-immersive Controller with 12 degrees of freedom… If you like the idea -let me know!
(By the way - In the future i really want to work with SonicPi on a Pi based platform -if you would have any suggestion which type of your boards would be best / or when you have the possibility to give away some of them too )
Thanks -stay healthy!
