ASquare bought an Arduino starter pack before christmas and has wasted no time becoming a hardware-hacking geek.
Not only is his new blog totally awesome but he’s also got an impressive initial project!
The monome is a gorgeous, minimalist, open-source light-and-button pad used primarily by musicians as a controller. The folks over at SparkFun Electronics, inspired by the monome, released their own button pads and circuit boards, only they designed theirs to be able to hold RGB LEDs. They made this nifty Tetris game with their parts. Looking at it, though, I noticed something: they only seemed to use a limited palette, in particular, they only appeared to have red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, yellow, and white, corresponding to channels being fully on or fully off. I wanted to see if I could get colour mixing, wherein channels were on partially in order to blend colours smoothly.
not sure you’re up to all this? you can always buy Monome kits direct from the ethereal source!
