The Pylofon

Computers & Mobile Craft & Design Robotics Technology

Moritz sent in his latest project called the “Pylofon”. It’s a wireless robotic xylophone that can be controlled via the Internet, a cell phone, or a Wiimote.

We build it in two nights at Easter 2008, using 2 Graupner Servos, a 99c-xylophone, a cardboard-box, an Asus WL500gP-wlan-router with OpenWRT Kamikaze and Python 2.5, SSH, a Pololu Serial 8-Servo Controller, an USB to Serial-Adapter, a Bluetooth-Stick and a USB-Memory-Stick.
