To celebrate the end of finals and the end of fall semester, I felt like a quick and easy electronics project was in order. The Drawdio delivered. It took about five minutes to assemble the easy-to-find parts, and the result promises to amuse me for hours, at the least.
I prototyped it on a breadboard and will fit it onto a pencil tomorrow. I used the Adafruit design but without buying the PCB or the kit, these are not necessary. Radioshack and a Veroboard/Stripboard will do just fine.
Again, everything you need to know about the Drawdio is explained here.
And yes, I am the kind of person who, when first introduced to the theremin, thought it was the coolest thing ever and dreamed of getting one and playing the Legend Of Zelda theme on it. Ergo, I love the Drawdio, and I will soon be trying to draw a keyboard with the right resistivity between the points so I can play music on an instrument I drew on paper. TOTALLY AWESOME
Now that I have tons of time, I think I'll be getting back to the rest of that Pacman assignment from last post.
