8Bit midi controller

I wanted to create a arcade game music box that you could connect to your pc or mac to play with music.

To keep the nostalgic factor I used the arcade buttons that most people know as the classic arcade buttons for games like street fighter. With this box you can edit and make sounds of the old console and arcade games

Something about me.

I am a webdesigner / developer. Currently Looking for a job. I have been studying at Lincoln University to get my bachelor. Before that I finished the interactive course at Sint-Lucas. I went to Aruba for 1/2 year. Learned a lot about Video edditing and VFX. The second period I did my training period at a digital agency.

Le-Tower Lamp

This lamp is created with paper and recycled cardboard.

The lamp is controlled by arduino, I'm still creating a sketch for it so the lamp reacts to sounds. (more sound means more light.) but for now the lamp is a feast for the eye.

Pixel Resolution

Resolution brief. The idea was to use arduino to control a Processing sketch that changes the resolution of the image,

Later I connected the same sketch to a webcam and with a ultrasonic sensor you can adjust the "resolution" of yourself.

“When someone has to find something quick, it helps if the 'something' is looking like they expect it to.”

WIP Site

Because I knew that this page would take a lot of my free time I decided to make a "Work In Progress" website.

The reason why I made this page is to let people know I was still buisy working on my new page. And my old page was out dated so this was the best thing to do.

QRotes is a small project of mine that I made to test the curiosity of humans. With QRcodes you can't see what underneath the code and that's the fun part.
