I’ve just purchased an arduino clone from http://www.seeedstudio.com/ omg these things are so cool I’ve been making midi interfaces using various sensors like piezo transducers to make drum kits and other things I’ll post photos & code soon.. I’ve also purchased a protosheild, Motor servo Control Shield from adafruit along with other fun kits TV_B_Gone that turns off most televisons great & fun gag device šŸ™‚ & a MiniPOV3 kit that has 8 LED’s when you wave it in the air it writes messages. I’ve seen this sold as a toy but the kits are so much fun to build & mod if you would like.  at lastly I purcahsed a Danger Shild for the arduino that’s great for learning hot to interface the arduino with various components this is what it has:

  • 3 x linear sliders w/ integrated LEDs (each independently hooked up to PWM)
  • 3 x pushbuttons
  • 2 x indicator LEDs (each with a PWM)
  • 1 x piezo buzzer (for making noise!)
  • 1 x temperature sensor
  • 1 x light sensor
  • 1 x knock sensor
  • 1 x 7 segment LED (with shift register)
  • power LED and reset button

I’ve had some fun using the sliders to control knobs via Midi in various Linux Music compositon software using a Library & program called ttymidi you can program your arduino to output various Midi control data to usb… ttymidi=cheap arduino based Costum Midi Controllers.. šŸ˜€
