The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


VGA output on a Ybox2

Music Technology

In this video, Limor shows off her build of the Turbulence microcontroller-based demo. She accomplished this by going retro (hey, it’s demoscene, man), adding VGA and stereo audio output to her Parallax Propeller-based Ybox2 kit (which has NTSC out). To add VGA/stereo out, she created a mini-shield plug-in for the YBox. Pretty nifty! And as she says, it’s really impressive that the Propeller MCU can process decent VGA and stereo audio. It’s funny to see her drag out her old VGA monitor, too. Hey, where can I get one of those Techno-Goth stickers!?

    Or are lip rings disturbing? All I can think about is that sound metal makes when you tap it against your teeth.

    @hurf durf: do you eat all your food with plastic utensils? :)

    Im sorry to all Swedish persons for the offense. I was tired and lazy, I should have looked it up. In my defense I am an American and all European countries look & sound the same to me!

    and a true inspiration!
    As European, humm, I wouldn’t say we all look and sound the same, but I guess we all are homosapiens, or some at least! ;-)
    keep on rolling!
