Musician James Hill Converts a Ukulele into an Entirely New Instrument Armed with a pair of humble wooden chopsticks, a .74 cent plastic comb, and a few other minor modifications, Canadian musician James Hill can convert his ukulele into a ridiculous beat machine. Hill mimics a wide range of rhythmic genres from techno to hip hop in this brief clip shot at a sold-out 2011 show at Don Quixote’s International Music Hall in Felton, California. There’s a lot of build-up and preparation, the music starts around 3:45.

A New Acoustic Instrument That Creates Sounds like a Digital Synthesizer The Yabahar is a new acoustic instrument designed by Istanbul-based musician Görkem Şen that emits music right out of a retro sci-fi movie, a remarkable feat considering there isn’t a bit of electricity involved. The Yabahar can be played in a variety of different ways using mallets or with a bow, relying on a combination of two drum-like membranes, long springs, and a tall fretted neck to create music. Like any instrument, it’s capable of producing sounds that run the gamut from “beautiful music” to “noise.”
DIY Hololens by FultonX I wanted to go ahead and develop Hololens apps. Here is Microsoft's live demo video: After experimenting and seeing a couple AR kickstarters, I figured out a way to develop comparable hardware... at least for prototyping. The HMD costs ~$10 and it projects any mobile phone image enlarged at 16" from the eye. Years – Bartholomäus Traubeck A record player that plays slices of wood. Year ring data is translated into music, 2011. Modified turntable, computer, vvvv, camera, acrylic glass, veneer, approx. 90x50x50 cm. A tree’s year rings are analysed for their strength, thickness and rate of growth.

RGB and Gesture Sensor - APDS-9960 - SEN-12787 Description: This is the SparkFun RGB and Gesture Sensor, a small breakout board with a built in APDS-9960 sensor that offers ambient light and color measuring, proximity detection, and touchless gesture sensing. With this RGB and Gesture Sensor you will be able to control a computer, microcontroller, robot, and more with a simple swipe of your hand! This is, in fact, the same sensor that the Samsung Galaxy S5 uses and is probably one of the best gesture sensors on the market for the price. The APDS-9960 is a serious little piece of hardware with built in UV and IR blocking filters, four separate diodes sensitive to different directions, and an I2C compatible interface.
Wiring the APDS 9930 Ambient Light Sense / APDS 9960 RGB Gesture Sensor with Microcontroller This is the touch-less gestures sensor a HMI (Human Machine Interface) by swiping your hand over the sensor, which controls a computer, microcontroller, robots or home, automotive, industrial gesture switching or ambient light and color measuring and proximity detections. The Avago / Broadcom APDS 9930 / 9960 RGB and Gesture Sensor board break out pins so you can easily use it in variety of projects together with your SBC and MCU. The APDS-9930 APDS 9930 provides a digital ambient light sensing, IR LED and a complete proximity detection system in a single chip. The proximity function offers plug and play detection to 100mm without front glass. The proximity detection feature operates well from bright sunlight to dark area.
