my latest controller. i'll premiere it this friday (23july, 2010) at the bring-your-own-laptop event at staalplaat. it inlcludes a light sensor, 2 touch sensors, some big switches and lots of knobs for control. it is also wireless and runs off either a 9v battery or a 9-14v wall adapter. the controller data is picked up by redWirelessMaster and is then read by the computer via a serial port.
firmware, partslist and schematics attached below. a supercollider class for interpreting the data is also included.
photostream from the build process. i took out most of this beautiful old electronics and replaced it with my own circuit board. only kept the front end interface with the nice knobs.
update 101109: minor updates
update 130122: supercollider gui class updated and new helpfiles and midi control (via a nanoKontroll).
