My latest controller. I'll premiere it this Friday (23 July 2010) at the bring-your-own-laptop event at staalplaat. It includes 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, parts list and schematics attached below. A SuperCollider class for interpreting the data is also included.
Flickr photostream from the build process. I took out most of these beautiful old electronics and replaced it with my own circuit board. Only kept the front end interface with the nice knobs.
