NoiseHack and making NoiseJar

This weekend I joined an event called NoiseHack and made a NoiseJar!

This is the NoiseJar I made :D





NoiseHack event:

Stanley Lunetta, inventor in the 1970's of the logic-based Lunetta Synthesizer, gave us a demo of his Suitcase Sound Gun and his cube.

Demo of NoiseJar



I decided to join their workshop and make a NoiseJar!



Materials for NoiseJar.



First you take the chip and place it on the breadboard.



The chip we used was HEF40106, and you can see the schematics here.

Connecting the condenser, power case, light sensor, LED etc.



We used this jumper to connect light sensors and LEDs so that we don't have to solder.



Testing- connecting the output to speaker and by changing the amount of light transmitted to the sensor, we can control the noise.



Doing the same for the second set of condenser, light sensor, and LED.



Connecting the audio output material.



Everything contained in the jar. (Made a hole on the jar so that the audio output can go through the hole)



Attaching the switch.





It would be great if we can have speakers on it. (No, we did not do this, this time.)



NoiseJar demo using stand light.



Demo of Skatchplate - noise project using combs.





Results from their workshop

Some more photos from the NoiseBridge tour.

3D printer



Book scanner



Laser cutter



Sewing machine



Another sewing machine that can be controlled by a gameboy!



Lots of computers for folks to open and play around to learn how the computer works.



Lots of parts



wifi



Oscilloscope



I think this is the tool to solder from both sides so that you can do surface mount soldering but I can be wrong.



Library



Woodwork / Metalwork room





Dark room & Optic lab

Kitchen - food hacking!



Thank you to John for teaching us how to make the NoiseJar!
