A Foot Interface

by on Feb.16, 2009, under Interface, Technology

So here’s what I got:


The whole thing plugs in via USB and acts like a regular joystick – the four pedals are four different axises on the controller.


And the whole thing is pegged onto a circutboard from a regular controller.

Edit: FYI, the foot pedals I found at a thrift store. After tearing away the unwanted/unneeded parts, they were screwed to a piece ‘o wood. Some buttons were purchased and, after making the appropriate holes, they were also attached.

The use of an existing controller had some disadvantages: the board I used has a hardware dead zone that makes no sense with pedals and makes them pretty much unusable.

Too many screens

by on Jan.24, 2009, under Interface, Technology

This isn’t exactly brand new, but hey, I thought I’d throw it up anyway.

Many Monitors

I guess I have an obsession for many motitors and screen space.

What you see:

  • Left 2 monitors: laptop and its second head.
  • Topmost monitor (on the shelf): tablet laptop.
  • Main 4 monitors: 22″ widescreens.  Two are connected to  a GeForce 8800 GTX (lower) and two are connected to a GeForce 9800 GT.  The combined resolution of just these four monitors alone is over 7 million pixels.
  • Mouse: Logitech G5: one of the best mouses out there.
  • Linksys router: Running DD-WRT this acts as a wireless network bridge to the network upstairs, where the modem is.
  • Keyboard/nanoKontrol/nanoPad – Some misc. MIDI devices for a sound project I’ve been working on.

Using Synergy I can control all three computers with one mouse/keyboard.
