Jeri Ellsworth’s Amazing Commodore 64 Keytar

Jeri Ellsworth, who now works for Valve Software, showed off her Commodore 64 Keytar at Maker Faire Bay Area.  She isn’t just using the Commodore as a cool case for her bass guitar, she is actually tapping into the internal sound processor of the Commodore 64.  She even has the keyboard working as a synthesizer.

Did I mention she played the keytar on roller skates?  My vote for best project at the 2012 Maker Faire Bay Area.

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.
