Build your own Arduino-based prototyping tool and performance interface
Arduino enthusiast and artist Steve Cooley has developed what can only be described as a beautiful and very well-constructed extension the Arduino board with his prototyping tool and performance interface. The purpose of the interface is to allow much easier connections to the analog and digital I/O pins, as well as rotary and linear slide potentiometers to help create analog input for various projects (ideal for the low-fi synthesiser described earlier). Watch Steve's work in action below:
What an amazing piece of work, and a great way of making repeated and stable connections to an Arduino-style board. For more information and very detailed construction diary, visit Steve's pages here. And we're on twitter, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
If this sort of project intrigues you and you're new to Arduino, the first step is a solid board for your projects - our Freetronics Eleven - the Arduino-Uno compatible with low-profile USB socket, onboard prototyping space and easy to view LEDs:
