Dodecaudion is a spatial audiovisual controller based on such technologies as infrared distance sensors, arduino, bluetooth, processing and osc.

Most of the sound in this video was recorded live and edited/postproduced later on.
(you’ll find live and uncut performance played during hackdays here: blip.tv/hackdays/dodecaudion-koncert-5556815 – please mind that sound setup and recording weren’t optimal though )

The project is in alpha phase right now but should be ready for production in following months and will be available via HEDOCO online shop.

Dodecaudion is totally opensourced:
MIT license – source code.
Creative Commons (CC BY-NC-SA) – form design, PCB layout & everything else.

You’ll find source code, CAD documentation and PCB schematics on github ( please note however that they still need some cleanup, we’ll post an update soon ).
github.com/panGenerator/dodecaudion

The heart of Dodecaudion is an Arduino and open source software. The Arduino collects data from all the Dodecaudion sensors and sends them to a computer.

Dodecaudion connects via Blutooth to computers. Messages are translated and retransmitted via OSC (software for Mac OSX and Windows available for download).

Included:

  • Arduino Uno,
  • Dodecaudion Shield rev. 2.0,
  • Alluminium and polymer composites housing,
  • Power source (230 V for EU continental outlets)
  • USB cable (not neccesary for normal operation but handy for tinkering with microprocessor code)

It’s available now and priced at 5,000 PLN, which translates into around US $1,600.
