This hat is very conscious about social distancing (rightfully) and if you go too close it will shout at you (not quite rightfully). When the hat is shouting it’s mind blows … Continue reading Building the AntiSocial Distance Machine – The Arduino code (HC-SR04, DFmini Player) and electronics
As part of my HND level Sound Production course, we had to create a cover song from scratch. The studio work was a group effort and mixing was an induvidual affair. Our group of four has picked the "A Forrest" from The Cure and I would say shamelessly, that Mr Robert Smith should be proud, … Continue reading The Cure cover track produced as part of my college work

I couple of month ago I`ve dived into the world of Arduino microcontrollers. To get things going, I have purchased an original Arduino Uno starting set. It provides a tidy book which takes you through some of the things you can do with that little device. Everything is nicely explained and if you get through … Continue reading Collection of bits
