@wayn3w I have not played with sound at all, but mostly with lights. Peter Vogel has been a big inspiration and he mostly built sound sculptures
I power my sculptures mostly over USB so that I don't have to deal with batteries
Are you selling your work anywhere?
How often have you shut down your USB port from excessive current draw?
@mic.cisek no plans on selling, but I do hope to use them to raise funds for charity. I'm open to suggestions!
@mumi I have not had that issue - most good USB supplies are protected
Where do you get your inspiration from? How do you get to the circuit diagram?
Thanks for mentioning Peter Vogel -- yes, his stuff is inspirational.
@Timo Emmerich inspiration comes in many forms. I have a book full of doodles of sculptures - one thing leads to other. My background is electronics, so that comes as second nature.
I'm inspired by works of Mark Tilden, Peter Vogel, Ham radio, and BEAM robotics
What is the biggest thing you've ever made that technique?
Thank u, can I find them on insta?
It was awesome to see Hackaday host the circuit sculpture contest last year - so may cool projects came out of it!
I missed that contest! darn!
that was really fun
motivated me to good big, though I still didn't do the full scale sculpture I have envisioned
Yeah, I loved that contest! Fun to write about those entries
Search BEAM robots by Mark Tilden or sculptures by Peter Vogel on google, They are the real OGs and not on Insta !
I try to keep the sculpture projects small, and something that I can finish over the course of few nights
I'm looking forward to using my bantam tools mill to incorporate wood, and milled brass into projects
maybe circuit inlays in wood?!
heh, thought I saw that in the corner of one of your pictures
So that's an hour, and we always like to give our hosts the option of bailing if they have to get back to the real world. Everyone is welcome to stay on, of course, but I'll just say a big thanks to Mohit for coming by and sharing his work. I really like the idea of having something to relax with, and I think I'll probably end up trying my hand a circuit sculpture too.
Thanks everyone! We're going to be taking a break from Hack Chat for a while, with the Supercon coming up next week (!) and Thanksgiving soon thereafter. We'll reconvene in December. See you then!
Thank you Mohit Bhoite | मोहित भोईटे Very inspirational! :-)
Thanks Mohit! I've got a shopping list and ample inpiration!
circuit sculptures for holiday gifts!
Thank you Mohit. There is a wealth of information on line about people inlaying copper into wood. It would be a fruitful area
Thank you @Dan Maloney ! and thank you everyone who took time to come hangout!
Thank you @Dan Maloney for organizing it :-)
You bet. Hope to see a lot of you at Supercon!!
