Gers motion switch- basics

Ger has been building a special movement triggered switch which is used in conjunction with an Arduino and PhysPut. Ger is close to finishing a new version of Physput which we will see over the next few weeks. The switch he has built above and demonstrated above is intended to be used in conjunction with a switch-operated universal remote control (this is a specialised piece of assistive technology) . We use a Sparkfun 5DOF gyro and accelerometer board to provide a set of movement signals which are processed to yield a switching signal which drives the universal remote control. In this example Physput is not required.

Drum machine progress

Joe is conducting a mega project to build some classic drum machines of the past. This is a quick update from him. I think this is a roland TR-808.

Open EEG over Flash

This is a demonstration from Aaron of our Open EEG amplifier being used to measure ECG and our high throughput low latency streaming solution over the web. This is a good example of a rich internet application for signal streaming. One can easily imagine this in use as a connected health application.
