How do you create a new type of musical instrument using the right sensors, arduinos and some clever ergonomic engineering?
I invented a way to play bass and guitar, at the same time,
using the same 4 fingers and thumb you normally use to play guitar,
on a regular old electric guitar.
(with a bunch of software and hardware and sensors)


Learn about analog to digital sampling, physical computing, MIDI, arduino, physical design, prototyping and more!
I will talk about the design issues, coding challenges, going from idea to POC to prototype to pilot.

Various parts <img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8625/16873114021_3f0d9ccc82.jpg">

boards for the POC (too big to actually fit in the pedal)

POC that will evolve into the Prototype of the pedal (the tiny blue board is a Arduino Nano that will be the brains of the pedal. <img src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7616/16253806353_5eacbd3c46_z.jpg" alt="picture of guitar pedal prototype">

take a listen/look at:
