  • New gyro SHAKE’s.

    Have just been playing with the new gyro-enabled SHAKE devices. These are small matchbox sized units that contain 3-axis accelerometers, magnetometer, and now also gyro’s for measuring angular rate. Also included is…

  • Vincent Hayward

    Vincent Hayward visited SARC to give a seminar on his work “New Methods for the Controlled Delivery of Specific Tactile Stimuli”. He talked about the novel haptic interfaces that are being developed…

  • Edge-trimmer prototype#2

    Ok, here’s the first real prototype of the edge-trimmer, which is a little more solidly constructed than the chair leg version… It currently isn’t hooked up to make any noise, although it…

  • record spinning interface

    Just started a prototype of a new interface. A ‘Shake’ device containing accelerometers, magnetometers, bluetooth and capacitive sensors is strapped to the center of a 10″ record, allowing the user to perform…

  • ‘Edge-trimmer’ prototype

    A very very rough prototype of a new instrument which may resemble an edge-trimmer has been made. So far this consists of an ergonomic handle (not a chair-leg!) connected to a magneto-rheological-fluid…

  • Arduino

    Have been learning how to use an Arduino micro-controller board this afternoon. After struggling for days to do serial i/o using a PIC earlier in the year I’m surprised at how easy…

  • Pebblebox

    Have been given the pebblebox to set up and play with…
