Teensy MIDI USB foot controller for controlling Mobius Looper - More DIY How To Projects]]> http://cdn.instructables.com/FEW/SSI3/HZ2IVXFD/FEWSSI3HZ2IVXFD.SQUARE2.jpg http://cdn.instructables.com/FEW/SSI3/HZ2IVXFD/FEWSSI3HZ2IVXFD.SQUARE.jpg http://cdn.instructables.com/FEW/SSI3/HZ2IVXFD/FEWSSI3HZ2IVXFD.SMALL.jpg Thrifleganger Motivation:Playing in a 2 piece band, with the drums and lots of other samples being played back as backing tracks, there was a need to use a looper to add in more elements to the tracks. A hardware based looper fails in this respect, since there is no way to maintain synchronisation. Meaning, sli...

Here is an 'ible for making a device that turns TVs on when you want them off, and off then you want them on! If you hide it in something inconspicuous, it would make a great April Fools joke or gag gift. And the best part is that the total parts cost is less than $1.50!! (Assumin...

In plain English, this is how to program 8-pin Atmel chips as you would normally an Arduino. This is cool because the ATtiny is tiny, and - well - this allows you to make tiny things that don't need a big ol' m...

In plain English, you can use the Arduino to read sensors and control things like motors and lights. This allows you to upload programs to this board which can then interact with things in the real world. With this, you can make devices...

I used to dream of making this same car in the real world.  Now, in 11th  grade ( Age 17) having got an Arduino Uno and learnt how...
