Introducing…Apollo 13.

Greeting everyone! I’m glad to be a part of the bloggers here at PS: One and even more excited to share the project that took me the past four months to complete. The Apollo 13.

But it’s actual name is the Maven. Because DJ Sasha happens to be the only one in the world who owns one – until you know, today.

Sasha is just one of those DJ’s that stands out to me, he’s not just putting two songs together, he’s putting on a real performance and he’s doing it with Ableton Live and the Maven. A one off piece of hardware so unique that if you know what Ableton is you drool just looking at this thing. It’s a fantastic looking device and I wish I could see the thing in person! Alas, I went entirely off of photos and four months ago began the project to replicate the device.

Transmissometer: measures concentration with lasers

I’m starting a company that makes campfire scented cologne, and to solve a problem in my production process, I built a transmissometer.  Here is the video Aaron Kowalski and I made with Element 14‘s support:

Here are more details on the device, including photos, schematics, and source code.

Thanks to everyone who helped out with the build and filming!

Take on the Machine #2: NYC Resistor

This week our friends at NYC Resistor open up the competition with their drink dispensing slot machine.  The amount of polish they were able to put into their project is impressive, especially the mouthy monochrome LED display in the drink dispenser.

Stay tuned for next week for Pumping Station: One’s feature episode where we ask, “Would you like that á la mode?”

We’ve Got Something New For You

Sheperd Fairey Unveiling

If it’s been a while since you last laid your eyes on the nav bar of our humble website, now would be a good time to reacquaint yourself with it.  We’ve added a Media tab up top that contains all of PS:One’s official video (and soon to be audio as well).

We’ve been quietly recording talks and events over the last year and here is just a small selection of those recordings.  There are additional Guided Tours along with the rest of your favorite PS:One talks still in queue to be edited.

Many people have invested a lot of time and work to bring this content to a broader audience extending our reach into the greater community.   Carl Karsten was integral in showing me a less-cumbersome workflow for shooting and recording audio.  Also, Tim Saylor has scheduled so many great speakers for Guided Tours and made such a great help with production (and even taking over once as of this writing).

Now give your strained eyes a rest from this 20th century concept of “reading” and sit back to enjoy some syndicated PS:One goodness.
