Coil DMX Bridge


For the bay area based lighting collective, Coil, I designed an AVR based MIDI/DMX bridge for translating keyboard controls into an interactive color organ and motion controller for lights.

Later this project acted as the basis for a popular tabletop tennis video game rendered using three TechnoBeams, as well as a interface to connect a MIDI drum pad to a bank of AF-1000 strobe lights.

It features on board memory banks for program and animation settings, buffered MIDI & DMX I/O and realtime firmware for precise timing and smooth animation.
