“Bicycle Wheel + Walkman” at World MakerFaire

Spotted at World MakerFaire, this cool project by Adam Matta. I like the reference to Marcel Duchamp’s Readymade Bicycle Wheel.

Nicely done! Happy Friday!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Very nifty project. Funny, I missed the Duchamp reference at first…instead fixated thinking of Laurie Anderson’s tape-bow violin.

  2. De double oh de double oh style. Mix master mike would be proud. I was guessing til video started great work.

  3. Very cool!

    Also reminiscent of Laurie Anderson’s violin with tape on the bow.

  4. I was like, umm what? Links are no help … then I looked very closely and realized it wasn’t to be attached to a rolling bike, but apparently a loop of magnetic tape mounted in the wheel that touched the tape heads. Looks like an analog loop that can be scrubbed to-and-fro.
