Teletron: A Circuit Bent Brainwave Synth Interface

from GetLoFi:

Robert Schneider is a musician and record producer best known for his involvement in The Apples in Stereo. He is also a student of mathematics, occasional experimentalist, and a GetLoFi reader! The other day he shared this simple yet elegant mod for Mattel MindFlex.

This toy device is designed to read brain wave activity via a headset which allows the wearer to control a fan that levitates a small ball.  The brain wave activity guides the fan and the ball around an obstacle course. The  modification allows the wearer to use brain waves to control and change the pitch on a synthesizer via CV (control voltage).  Schneider removed the DC power that goes to the internal fan and routed that to an added 1/4 inch output jack which he connected to a synthesizer.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
