Interdictor is a performance piece for soloist with interactive sculpture. Electromyography readings (Myo bands) and inductive sensor readings (flexible electronics developed by Fraunhofer IZM) are communicated to and interpreted by a large network of Arduino Mega 2560s. The network controls a colossal array of computer fans built into the structure – bitbanging each computer fan into a small, individually addressed FM synthesizer. The fans alone produce every sound in the piece.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
