FSR to Piezo

September 4, 2017

Today was another fun filled day of playing with sensors and writing code. Mostly today was about trying to figure out a solution for connecting the physical elements in the Water room with the hardware and the coding components.


I worked with an FSR, a Flex Sensor, and Piezo's. I was able to get each of them working in some capacity, I was able to get the hardware hooked up, I was able to get the Arduino code working, and I was able to get these devices connected to Max/MSP; however, I was unable to get the incoming data to trigger sound the way I need it to. I am slowly discovering that my current ideas with regard to connecting the data to Max are not going to work. I need to find a way for my sensors to trigger "individual" sounds, like the sound of a rain drop (singular). Otherwise, it becomes an on/off kind of thing and that is not really all that effective. Mostly because at this point in order for me to do that I would need to use a ton of FSR's and at $7.95 a pop, that would be hella expensive. Whereas using the Piezo has the potential to be a much cheaper ($0.95 each) solution. However, I have not yet figured out how to get the Piezo to work in the way I want it to. It is going to take quite a bit more experimenting to get a handle on this one.





On a side note I clocked myself doing some crocheting on the bus the other day. These are my results:
