MIDI message have three parts: one sets the message type and channel, another sets the velocity, and one sets the pitch. The code here only looks at the pitch. This is one of those projects that would be a lot harder without a 3D printer. There are other ways to actuate the finger holes, but being able to make an exact-fitting bracket is very useful. Alas, we couldn't find a video demo. If you know of one, please drop the link in the comments below. We have seen bagpipe robots (in fact, we've seen several ). We've also seen hammering shotguns into flutes , which is certainly more melodious than plowshares. Filed under: Arduino Hacks , ARM , musical hacks

2016 was a year of much drama for the European Union, as refugees and ordinary citizens can surely attest. For one, it had all the makings of a Greek tragedy whilst also, as Britain’s Brexit negotiating team demonstrated, it resembled a vaudeville farce. The question however is: if the EU was a musical, which one would it be?

[Bithead942]'s ten-year-old niece is a huge Star Wars fan, and also a violinist. Which of course has led her to learn to play some of the music from the film franchise, and then to ask her uncle to make her violin bow light up like a lightsaber. His solution might seem fairly straightforward at first sight, simply attach a strip of DotStar addressable LEDs to a bow and drive them from an Arduino Pro Mini to gain the required animation of a saber power-up. But of course, there's another dimension to this project. Not only does the bow have to do its lightsaber trick, it also has to be a playable bow. The electronics must not impede the musician by being too heavy or intrusive, but the result must have enough power in reserve to keep the lights burning for the duration of a performance. After experimentation with AAA cells and CR2032s the power requirement was satisfied by a tiny Li-po cell attached to the top of the end of the bow with industrial Velcro, and the LED strip was glued and further secured using tiny rubber bands of the type used by orthodontists.

That's 136,000 grams at 135 meters per second for the rest of the world out there. This hoverbike' will be used for very quick resupply, and hopefully a futuristic form of jousting . Over the past few months, we've seen a few new microcontrollers built around the RISC-V core. The first is the HiFive1 , a RISC-V on an Arduino-shaped board. The Open-V is another RISC-V based microcontroller, and now it too supports the Arduino IDE . That may not seem like much, but trust me: setting up the HiFive1 toolchain takes at least half an hour. The NAMM show has been going on for the last few days, which means new electronic musical gear, effects pedals, and drum machines. This is cool, but somewhat outside our editorial prerogative. This isn't. It's a recording studio using a Rasberry Pi . Tracktion is working on a high-quality digital audio input and output add-on for the Pi 3.
