A $4 ULTRASONIC THEREMIN LOOKS CHEESY ON PURPOSE

We don’t think [bleepbit] will take offense when we say the “poor man’s theremin” looks cheesy — after all, it was built in a cheese container. Actually, it isn’t a bad case for a simple device, as you can see in the picture and the video below. Unlike a traditional theremin, the device uses ultrasonics to detect how far away your hand is and modifies the sound based on that. There are also two buttons — on ...

Play Music using Arduino Esplora

This example shows how to play notes on the buzzer mounted on the Arduino Esplora. Buzzers can generate different audio signals in audible frequency ranges. A note is an audio signal at a specific frequency. If you know the frequency of the notes you want to play, you can start to compose a melody. In this example, you move the slider to generate different notes, and play them by pressing the down push-butt ...

Arduino Project 6: Web-controlled music player

Our NetPlay project is built on a standard breadboard. In our previous Arduino masterclass we briefly introduced the Ethernet Shield an Arduino expansion board that adds Ethernet connectivity plus microSD card storage. We used that storage as the basis of a simple one-button digital audio player. It was functional but limited to 8-bit mono WAV files with a 19kHz sample rate. We also gave you the software to ...
