Me and My VK-8 (Hammond Keyboard Clone)

Here is a video of me playing along with a "jam track" haha. Anywho, I just got my organ in the mail Monday and I couldn't be happier. The touch of the keys is incredible and the tonewheel generator sounds great as well. The drawbars and the Roland D-Beam are a lot of fun to play with! I can't wait to get it out to a gig!

Tour of Leer Media

Here is just a quick tour around my home office, so you can see my setup and some of my fun "toys"/work objects. Hope you all enjoy. I don't really have interns but if I did, they would have a larger closet than that to sleep in....

MMD v2.0 (Domo Attacks!!!)

Live Stream

Move the Slider below to Make DOMO ATTACK!!!

Move the Slider below to Make Munny ATTACK!!!

MMD v2.0 (Domo ATTACKS!!) was made exaclty the same as version 1.0. I just replaced the duck with Domokun and added the webcam functionality. The trickiest part was getting the webcam setup. I used WebcamXP and posted the code using the HTML generator and then modified the size. Domo is moving using a servo motor connection to an ioBridge. Added functionality in 3.0 will have an iPhone only interface that will allow you to not only watch, but control Domo from the iPhone.


Version 3.0 is now available for the iPhone visit MMDv3 on your iPhone web browser.

First Project with My Own ioBridge!

Move the Slider below to Move the Duck!

Just recieved my very own ioBridge in the mail today and what better to do that make a ducky move from the internet!

I hooked up a servo to channel 4 of the ioBridge on channel 1 of the servo board and set the channel as a servo channel. I then added a variable servo control widget to my dashboard and now I can control the ducky's movement back and forth from the web over ethernet.

Halloween 2009

Here is my Wall-E pumpkin. I had the idea but stole the design from someone else online! At one point he even had glowing red eyes! He became known as EVIL WALL-E!

Technology on the Trip

Technology has played a huge part on my trip to the South. The biggest part was Navigon for the iPhone. This trip wouldn't have been as enjoyable and easy without it thus far. It had allowed me to get everywhere and has yet to lead me astray. The iPhone has also played an important part by providing me with the ability to blog on the spot, book hotel rooms, and find places to eat very quickly. I couldn't imagine a trip without a device like this. On another note my Asus Netbook has been a more than ample replacement for my HP laptop and has even helped me kill some time with netflix despite overall poor wifi connections down here.

Site of the 1982 World's Fair

Knoxville TN Worlds Fair Park

This is a picture of the Sunsphere at night. The ironic part about this picture is that this would not have been able to be posted in the same way without one if the inventions from the fair... the touch screen.

Tennessee Welcomes You with 3G

After a bit of a stint all day on the edge network, I entered Tennessee and was immediately greeted with full bars on a 3G network. I was starting to get worried. I then proceeded to tether my netbook to my iPhone and book a room in Knoxville for the night!
