Version 3 of the EMMMA-K will be demonstrated at Maker Faire Rome 2023 from October 20 to 22 as part of an exhibit titled "The Electronic Jug Band”. More information here Electronic Jug Band.
I became a Maker around the age of ten when my parents gave me an electronics experimenter kit for my birthday to try and prevent me from taking things apart. Ultimately I became an embedded software and electronics designer and entrepreneur. Now on permanent sabbatical I am actively participating in the Maker Movement with one of my goals to pass on the benefit of some of my years of experience. But I am also learning lots of new things that I never had time for before now.
Projects in 2022 and first half of 2023
The first half of 2022 was a slow start for me as far as my own projects are concerned because I worked on an embedded software development contract for a local tech firm which inspite of my plans to work part time took all of my time. I did manage to accomplish a few things in the latter part of the year with the most interesting being a tree decorated with 500 RGB LED lights synchronized to CheerLights and just in time for the holiday season! In the beginning of 2023 I experimented with making PCBs using a resin printer and then started on version 3 of my EMMMA-K electronic music keyboard which was completed in August, 2023. I will be demonstrating it and the technology that enables it at Maker Faire Rome 2023.
The EMMMA-K will be demonstrated at Maker Faire Rome 2023 from October 20 to 22 as part of an exhibit titled "The Electronic Jug Band".
