What's up?

I realize I haven't posted anything for more than half a year, so you might be wondering what I'm up to. Don't worry, there are plenty of projects in the pipeline. These are the two big ones right now:

First of all, I'm going to Breakpoint in April. Last year I made Craft, as you probably know, and the plan is to release another microcontroller demo this year, this time based on the Propeller chip from Parallax; a multicore microcontroller with a very peculiar architecture. It's addictively fun to work with, and unlike any other platform I've used. No pictures yet, for maximum suspension... But be sure to watch the video stream from Breakpoint once the competitions start, or even better: Come to the party!

I'm also playing around with a MIDI enabled, AVR based modular 8 bit synthesizer and sequencer. The sequencer interface is based on a 16 x 4 grid of LEDs and switches, and the synthesizer consists of a chain of sound generators and effects, hooked up to an analog mixer bus. This project is also really fun to work with, but I've got to prioritize the Propeller demo for now.

Apart from this, I've got loads of ideas that may or may not become reality. But I try to be disciplined and work on a few things at a time in order to finish them, and still have some time left for my other hobbies and professional work.

Awesome, I can't wait for another microcontroller demo. I m currently building a simple 3D Scanner using an avr mcu too. Hopefully we can have a small talk at breakpoint =)

Great Demo Linus!

A bunch of us were watching the Breakpoint TV feed, wishing we were there!
