I have two designs for midi controllers that I’m working on, a trigger pad, and something top-secret for a friend of mine. Both are using Atmegas and some SIPO shift registers.

Right now they are sitting in acrylic, but I’m looking at various options for cases, aluminium.

Playing a lot of sports growing up I took a lot of hits. Thinking about it last year playing rugby, I wish I had something that could measure the force of hits, and a few other body vitals (temp, sweat, etc..).

Having just receive an arduino I started hooking up sensors and leds. I deiced to mount them in a hockey helmet.

This early prototype measured force with FSR’s inside the helmet, an accelerometer on the top, and temperature sensor.
