Voice Changer Software Into Voice Changer Hardware

I'm making a costume. It's a cosplay. What I Have: Voxal Voice Changer. I already know it's capable of making exactly the voice I need. What I Need: A way of synthesizing my voice with that voice effect as part of my costume. Is this possible? The voice I need isn't a very complex one, but it's not a simple pitch change, either. All it is is a little flanger and a little vibrato, but so far I can't find voice changer devices that allow this without being hooked up to a smart phone or a computer, nor was I able to find portable voice changers that included this effect. They're all girthy with lights and dials, and that's hard to conceal on a costume. I noticed Voxal has an export voice feature that allows users to create .voxal files out of the voices, so I'm wondering if there are existing voice changers that could have this file uploaded to it some how, or if there is a way to make or modify a voice changer to do this. Let me know what you think.

Electric synthesized talk box? Answered

This is find of a run off of a previous question, where someone came up with the idea of making my voice sound like that in song Technoloigic by Daft Punk. Reason being, I'l be wearing one of their helmets. My question is: does anyone know of a way to make a talkbox that will work off of my plan voice with no outside noise? IE, I talk into a mic and the output is the sound from a talkbox. It would have to be small enough to fix into a coat pocket (so roughly the size of a pack of  cards).

How do you morph a glass bottle? Answered

 How do you morph bottles like in the pictures? I tried with my torch,  and absolutely failed, it cracked, and didn't soften. Am I an idiot, or does this take special equipment?

How can I morph a nearly 1/4 " aluminum disk into a cone? Answered

Attached is a crude Paint drawing of what I am after (the cone doesn't have to have  that much of a "throat" on it, I just need it to be slightly funnel shaped. I need to do this without "firing up" or heating the metal, and hopefully without marring the surface very much. Any ideas?

Can you become half a chimp?

Hi,  I made a funny video, please can you tell me what you think of it and give me any pointers? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mIrf--Vhfc It raises an interesting idea of what would happen if we combine with chimp DNA. Do you think that would happen? Would they take pity on Leo and give him an Oscar? Please look at my other vids on that channel and tell me if you think I'm doing anything right/wrong? Thanks a lot!!

Does anybody have any good costume ideas?

Hey guys, I have a pretty big dilemma - I don't know what to be for Halloween. The main problem is that last year, I went as Cookie Monster. Now, this wasn't some dinky store bought costume - it was seriously legit. It looked like a professional mascot costume. I wish I could upload some pictures to show you how serious I am. Oh well. Anyways, I want to out-do myself this year (or at least equal last year). I love morph suits (I have 2 already), and thought of going as Slenderman, but I then thought that that might not be all that original. Now, I know this is sort of contradictory for me to ask, but does anyone have any original (or not super-easily thought of) ideas for costumes that would be frickin' epic? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

3d TV Made Simple? Answered

Okay so, 3d tv works by darkening the glasses over each eye at the refresh rate of the tv right? But wouldn't it be easier to have the tv just morph the image a little tiny bit to the right and left like 70 times a second? Look at the pic.

Recommendations on propellers/controller for over 100g body.

Hello everyone,I am currently trying to build a DIY drone. I have never involved myself in any sort of creating drones. My current project is about making a drone with a morphing body we created. Previously, we just purchased a pre-made drone and took apart all the necessary components and re-attached all onto the morphing body. But the drone we used is this model : Holy Stone HS170 Predator Mini RC Helicopter Drone 2.4Ghz 6-Axis Gyro 4 Channels Quadcopter Good Choice for Drone TrainingThis product can make things fly when the weight is over 30~50g. Would you be able to recommend some products or any sources that can be useful for building a DIY drone? Thank you!

Duncan's Easy, Random Pistol

Meh, I was on a building spree and kept morphing a gun until I eventually came to this. After I was all done, I finally realized that I pretty much wasted my time because I accomplished nothing. Meh, it's a cool and different gun nonetheless, but it's nothing to get hyped over either. I was bored so I made a video for it anyways seeing how I haven't done that in a while. Enjoy. &amp;amp;lt;br&amp;amp;gt;

Creating a Twitter Controlled building for a Twitter office: What are the possibilities?

I'm thinking that trending topics can influence the building live; ie the wall morphs into the shape of #obama if he is trending, or the roof changes shape to reflect areas of the office making an image of #newsinternational etc.  You get the idea.  I'm trying to brain storm to work out what, in the building can move in accordance with live tweets.  It could be the roof opens when @BBCweather tag #sunny over london.  Honestly any ideas, concepts or technologies that I will need to know about would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much, Tom

UFO sighting at my local air show?

I went to my local air show in Cleveland and I actually saw  a shark like figure floating around in the sky it almost looked like a flying fish but backward. It looked as tho it was actually flapping a tail around to fly. After it was way off in the distance I took some pictures of it that hardly compare to the first ones as tho it actually morphed into a more bird like object I was wondering if any one had any opinions on these bazar photos I and my brother took. I will admit im the type to believe in these objects being from other planets, I have seen Videos on Youtube stolen from nasa that resemble this "Thing"  quite closely.

Part 2 of my laser glove question: i have it all hooked up, but am experiencing very low power from the lasers. See more

Ok i posted something related to this project earlier but i got it answered and have a new question. im building a laser-glove for halloween, and i for the most part have it all hooked up; -5 laser pointers in parallel -9v power source, 0.55Ah -600ohms resistance/laser pointer -2 resistors rated at 1.2 & 1.0 kOhm hooked up in parallel to the 9v my problem: generally all of the laser pointers are very weak. i figured i have a little less resistance than i need as is, so if anything they should be overpowered somewhat? *NOTE*: regarding safety concerns, i am going to be wearing the glove under a morph suit, which will very strongly damper the power of the lasers, which is why i want them working at full potential  here is my attempt at the schematic for it. sorry if it is not "correct" but this is how i have it all hooked up more or less:

Version control in open source or free hardware projects. Standard methodology?

I have a pallet garden project that has morphed from 1 type of pallet garden into 3 types and with several methods of irrigation and water cycling.  Is there a standard method of versioning it?   I have it on youtube on a playlist.  Someone suggested  using Semantic Versioning http://semver.org/  on the videos in my playlist to help me and others keep track.   I do video's a lot because talking to the camera helps define problems for me and sometimes other people do suggest solutions.   http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL00C41C26C91A76BB&feature;=view_all  The project continues to grow. I expect someone to come up with a Stirling or fluidyne method of using solar heat to compress the air in the next couple of months and if they don't I will do it myself.  (It is only 1 psi and 5 watts).   60 litres per hour works 3 pallet gardens together pretty easily.  I have 6 working at the same time right now.  2 vertical. 1 flat and 3 leaning pallet gardens.  I can double that as soon as I build some more.  Brian

Improve your jet boil ! ! or bushbuddy ! !, or any wood gas burner ! ! -- Looking for Carbon Fiber Felt 4 2nd prototype

- searching for carbon Fiver felt to use as a blanket/insulation around top half of the burner units of JetBoils, Bushbuddies, or any wood gas burner- D.I.Y. or otherwise. Use of carbon fiber felt at burner will greatly reduce heat loss to the environment, providing more heat to the pot or billy can being heated. Here, space must be allowed for additional air entraining to provide combustion air for complete burning of gases--proper shape of openings below burner top plate will allow for a soft shelled wind screen which will morph into a chimney-like structure surrounding pot or can which sits unmodified on top of Jet Boil, Bushbuddy, wood gas burner or hobo stove Note that a close fit to within as close as 1/4 will increase speed of gases/heat past pot scrubbing off heat to the pot being heated, possibly creating need to raise the height of the chimney I am using this site in hopes of some one who can find me Carbon Fiber "FELT", I am also open to any conversation on this concept / design.

House passes bill that will let the RIAA take away your home

From BoingBoingI was just alerted that the House of Reps has passed HR 4279, with the lovely name, PRO-IP (Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property Act of 2008). Like the doublespeak PATRIOT Act and Peacekeeper missiles, PRO-IP puts local law enforcement in a position to demand the forfeiture in criminal proceedings of stuff used to violate copyright. Which means that instead of the RIAA simply trying to collect fines, they can also incite local authorities to collect all the computers and related gear that was used to pirate.This isn't a judgment on my part as to whether piracy is good or bad (I think copyright deserves to be protected through reasonable methods), but I am always horrified when civil enforcement morphs into criminal enforcement. Conservatives and liberals should be up in arms alike that local prosecutors and/or police could intervene as they desire in essentially a private affair arranged by the RIAA, and permanently seize thousands or tens of thousands of dollars in private property in addition to any civil penalties.If this bill is passed in its present form by the Senate and signed, that means there's no more pro forma RIAA lawsuit payoffs, because if you wind up settling with the RIAA, you could still lose all your stuff in addition to any fee you paid them.This is particularly irksome in light of the MSN Music shutdown, about which the EFF has written a strong and powerful letter. It is increasingly likely a normal person could have purchased music legally from an online site, burned it to an ordinary audio CD, and in the right set of circumstances be branded a pirate because the original "granting" authority no longer exists to prove that the consumer was a legitimate purchasers.The more the law is constructed to sweep in folks who are absolutely observant of it, the more we need broader protections.PDF Link

Reflections on the Pier

Writing this is one of the hardest things to do. Writing this means that my artist-in-residence at Pier 9 has come to an end. What motivates me to keep writing is something that I learned and deeply embraced at the pier. The pier taught me that giving back to the community you're in is priceless and extremely valuable. More on this later. First, I want to tell you a little bit about my journey at the Pier.  During the first quarter of the residency I was overwhelmed by the things I could make at Pier 9. Pier 9 has it all, it's a makers / artist / designer / engineers paradise. So when I got there, I realized that I could make anything, which then made me question why I wanted to make those things and if those things really mattered... What impact would they have on the world, on me, on my surrounding community... This period of questioning was frustrating and hard. While others at the pier were making amazing objects and projects that were getting a lot of press and attention I was just sitting there... thinking as time was quickly passing by. Maybe this was something akin to writer's block. Maybe this was just me being an emotional artist. Maybe this was just me being burned out from a hard year of working at start ups in Silicon Valley. Maybe this was just growing pains (because I was transitioning from writing software to making physical things).  Things got better tho. What really helped get me out of this rut was the community at pier 9, especially Vanessa and Company. The community at Pier 9 is hands down the most valuable asset the pier has. The machines are great, but its really about the people that the pier attracts. Never have I worked in a space where everyone is so excited, helpful, funny, and happy about their work and the community around them. The culture at the pier is what helped me find my path and eventually helped me make a couple fun projects. I could go on and on about how awesome the community is, but I want to give you a couple concrete examples of things that happened to me that helped me grow and morph into who I am today.  Vanessa Sigurdson would sit down with me every so often and ask me how things were going. When I got really stuck on something she would immediate connect me with someone who could help me or show me something that could inspire me or help me get through my block. Thanks Vanessa, I owe you big time.  I asked Noah Weinstein a ton about his shop in Oakland and how he started it. His super valuable knowledge made me feel empowered and able! He is an individual that really follows through with what he says, very admirable! Thanks Noah!   Andy Lee and I would sit around and talk about triangles and math. Andy is an awesome maker and brave individual. He taught me to just try things out and not care too much if they failed. Andy's experiments at the pier made me feel comfortable prototyping ideas and concepts. Not everything has to be a final art piece. Being an artist / engineer is also about exploring and failing! Thanks Andy! Paolo Salvagione connected me with a major museum in SF. Next year I'll be showing a couple pieces there. His work has been an endless source of inspiration for me. The mechanical beauty in his designs inspires me to make every element in my art pieces elegant and beautiful. Paolo you are the man.  Dot Matrix and I went on runs along the Embarcadero to Crissy Field. Dot gave me some great perspective on the projects I was working on and vice versa. These runs helped clear my mind. In addition, looking at the ocean reminded me that the world is bigger than me. Its a great stress relief. Thanks Dot!!! Sitting next to Andreas Bastian was one of the best parts of the residency. Every time I thought what I was doing was hard, I'd just look at this desk and be humbled by the challenges he was taking on. Thank you Andreas, your work ethic is off the charts.  Craig Dorety blew my mind with his LED sculptures. Experiencing one of his pieces was like a DMT trip (from what I've heard :) ). Craig also taught me a ton about the art world and about how to do miter cuts on the water jet! IGES files are the key!! Thanks Craig!  Robb Godshaw taught me how to follow my impulses. If you have an idea brewing inside of you, you MUST make it! You are an awesome individual Robb! Keep killing it!  Observing Anouk Wipprecht taught me about being fearless and tackling challenges with authority. In addition to being an amazing designer, maker, hacker, and person, Anouk really knows how to reach out to her networks and communities for feedback, involvement, and help.  Dr. Woohoo taught me how to connect with people, and empowering others around me. His optimistic & mature perspective and hilarious nature always helped me find my way though all sorts of problems and challenges.  I could go on and on. So many good memories and so many things learned... Side note, I believe that Autodesk's Pier 9 will go down in history as the Xerox Parc of our modern day. So many talented people / things / concepts / ideas / pieces of knowledges come in and out of it, I don't know of any other place in the Bay I'd say is more innovative, cutting edge, open and inviting. Maybe Google X, Maybe Tesla / Space X... MAYBE.... Towards the middle/end of my residency when I was wrapping up projects, and new artists were coming in, I had this deep urge to help the new artists find their way just as the coordinators and other past artists had helped me find mine. Helping the new artists was one of the most satisfying things I did at the pier. I'd like to think my residency at Pier 9 has come full circle, but I think it even goes deeper than just my time at the Pier. I did my first instructable (as in I made someone else's creation) in 2007. Now 7 years laters, I hope that the instructables I have written and will write in the future will inspire young makers to keep making and eventually give back to their community in any way they can!  Thank you Pier 9, Thank you Instructables, Thank you Autodesk, Thank you fellow Artists. I will try to pay you back one day.
