“Dancing Stars” MaKey-MaKey Arduino Project #makeymakey #makeymakeymonday

Great MaKey-MaKey + Arduino multimedia project from Pieterjan Maes:

I created a starry sky with 80 led’s that interact with music. You can create music with a selfmade drawing that you use like a keyboard, and this made possible by a MakeyMakey. The music is triggered by an air application on your desktop, this app sends data to light the specific lit to the Arduino at the back of the starry sky. I used Arduinoconnector Native Extension to make the connection from Air to Arduino. There were a lot of cables, shiftregisters and breadboards needed to connect all led’s to the Arduino Uno board.

There are a few extra options in this project: you can choose what kind of music tune you want to hear, and it’s possible to randomise the stars or lit all stars at once. You can also connect to a server and receive or send data from or to another project. For the server I used AIRServer 0.5.

This was my first Arduino project, before this I had no experience with electronics what so ever. I had a lot of fun making this and I am looking forward to my next project.
