Steve Hoefer – Secret Knock Gumball Machine

Freshly published in MAKE Volume 25, the Secret Knock Gumball Machine dispenses candies when you know the secret rhythm! Take a tour of the project as we examine it in-studio. Project maker Steve Hoefer joined us via Skype to take your questions.

Collin Cunningham – MidiVox

MAKE video star Collin Cunningham joins us in-studio to share his Arduino add-on, the MidiVox, which turns an Arduino board into a programmable MIDI synthesizer. He engineered this shield himself and hand-picked the components that make up this kit, carried by the Maker Shed.
