3d Printing Musical Instruments. Back in 2012, I had the opportunity to do a free assignment.

3d Printing Musical Instruments

With DIY 3d printers becoming available in my school, I decided to figure out how 3d printers could change musical instruments. I did a long research into 3d printing techniques, which I tried to combine with musical instrument manufacturing techniques.

Build a laser show that moves to your favourite music. The first thing we want to do is provide power to the laser itself, and provide any easy method to turn it on and off.

Build a laser show that moves to your favourite music

The power is coming from the AC/DC adapter, but it ends in one of those plugs we're all so familiar with. What we need to do is wire a receptacle (which connects to our power adapter plug), to a switch (which allows us to turn power on and off), which then goes to the laser driver board itself. Don't connect anything to the laser yet! Why? We need to mount the switch and the receptacle in the box, and you'll quickly find that you need to pass the wires through the little hole in order to mount the switch.

Now we can solder those leads to the laser, and fix the laser driver board to a part of the box. Patchblocks. Audio Sauna - Online Audio Workstation. Mobile-access. Make your very own Tiny Ukulele.

What is Filk? Singout article

Filksongs and filksinging are the folk music of a time and a community, just as, say, Celtic ballads, or new England sea chanteys are — except the time is today (or tomorrow) and the community is science fiction and fantasy fandom. Filksinging got it's start in the 1950's, when fans of SF (never say sci-fi) and fantasy began holding weekend get-togethers — conventions, or "cons" at rented hotels. Sometimes a few musically inclined fans would gather late at night in a corner of the lobby and trade folk songs, often making up mutant lyrics about space travel or elves or convention-going or what have you. To quote Nick Smith of the Los Angeles Filkharmonics, "It is a mixture of song parodies and original music, humorous and serious, about subjects like science fiction, fantasy, computers, cats, politics, the space program, books, movies, TV shows, love, war, death...

Evolution has made it so that we are able to close our eyes but not our ears. Consequently, my ears are always perked and on the prowl for new sounds.
