HOMEMADE SAWSTOP ATTACHMENT IS JUST ABOUT AS SKETCHY AS IT SOUNDS

Most of us have probably by now seen the SawStop brand of self-stopping table saw, which detects when something meatier than wood has the bad taste to touch the spinning blade, more or less instantly stopping it and preventing sudden traumatic amputations. It’s an outstanding idea, and we’d love to see the technology built into …

Sound Activated Switch

Description Clap switch/Sound-activated switch designed around op-amp, flip-flop and popular 555 IC. Switch avoids false triggering by using 2-clap sound. Clapping sound is received by a microphone, the microphone changes the sound wave to electrical wave which is further amplified by op-amp. 555 timer IC acts as mono-stable multi-vibrator then flip-flop changes the state of …

Matrix sound machine: Generative music with a particle system using Arduino

This project is a part of experiments done while doing an artist in residence at Instructables. You can see the other projects here. Creating emergent patterns that can be converted into sounds fascinates me. So this is my first experiment in building an arduino platform for creating such patterns. This version uses a Gameduino as its …
