Other Projects / My AirDeck project is finished!
« on: December 05, 2009, 09:56:16 AM »
I presented my Undergrad project yesterday. It went very well. Here is some video I shot afterward of it in action:

Thanks to everyone who has offered ideas, suggestions or shown interest in my work - especially benpaddlejones. In the end, I wasn't able to include everything, such as the mixing part. And the scratching isn't quite what I had in mind either. But it's a good jumping off point for further work in this arena.

For now, I don't even want to look at code for a little while... but I definitely would like to continue doing some work with all of this in the future.

Kind Regards,


Other / Help needed with IR gloves
« on: October 24, 2009, 05:38:38 PM »
I am trying to construct a pair of IR gloves and amd having a bear of a time.

First question... if I have the Vishay 6400 leds, and a "AAA" x 2 battery holder, what kind of resistor should I have? I got 12 ohm resistors based on one of those online calculators, but I am not too sure that is correct after having experimented with them.

I am totally ignorant when it comes to electronics stuff, so any guidance would be very much appreciated!

Other Projects / Wii theremin project update
« on: August 03, 2009, 04:38:22 PM »
As I stated in my previous thread, I have been working on my Wii theremin/DJ project. I am far from being done and haven't even really started on the DJ side of things yet, but I do have a blog started as well as some video posted of the application work I've completed so far. Please check it out. Thanks!

Edited to reflect new domain!


I am somewhat new to this but have been thinking along similar lines as some of the other work I see here as well as the great work Ken Moore has done on the Wii theremin front.

I am a Computer Science student at Cal State with a minor in Recording Arts. I was a professional club DJ for a number of years and have been fascinated with music production most of my life. My interest in the theremin has ramped up recently and my initial idea for a Senior project involved creating a virtual digital theremin. Of course I thought this was an original idea until I started researching and saw all the awesome work done out there already on the web.

After seeing Ken Moore's site I decided that the Wiimote route was the best way to go, at least for the time being, as it is cheap and easy. 2 big pluses in my book.

Anyways, my idea is to create a Wii triggered application that will do the theremin thing, as well as controlling other synth parameters such as resonance or various filters, and couple it with the DJ side - the ability to scratch is a must and perhaps even, although this may be a bit ambitious, the ability to mix just like on 2 1200s with a mixer.

I see there is already some work on here done along these lines and am excited at the possibilities. I plan to completely design and code the app and UI myself, mostly from scratch, although using the available libraries that are out there for the Wii mechanics. I have already set up a Wiimote with a bluetooth dongle and IR led and found a piece of software ( that lets me use the LED to control my mouse. So that's a start...

In any event, as I am new to many of these concepts, I have my work cut out for me... fortunately I have some time before I have to enroll for the Sr. Project class, so I have plenty of time to research this stuff further. I am particularly interested in how timecoding works, such as used with products such as Final Scratch, as well as Midi interfacing.

Well, sorry for the long winded post, but I wanted to introduce myself and am absolutely open to feedback, suggestions, etc.
