Building an All-Analog Video Editing Controller Using Junk
On this episode of Rulof Maker, Rulof sets out to reduce his weekly video editing time by building his own video editing software controller. He decided to try and make one that is all mechanical (no MCU) and to make it out of as many recycled components as possible.
He did use some old components, built some ingenious mechanical switches for the control wheels, and used scrap wood. But in the end, he had to buy a keyboard PCB and some arcade buttons. The results are pretty cool for no digital control.
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.
