Transducer Installed

Tactile Transducer Installed

This is one of the first projects that I attempted. The idea was to build a tactile transducer on the cheap that could be mounted to a couch. If your not familiar with a tactile transducer, it is a device designed to transmit vibrations instead of sound. It’s mounted to home theater seating to give you an extra punch during those low frequency booms.

To view more details of this project, check out my project log over on the wiki.

My current project was inspired by an article in the current issue (21) of Make Magazine – a Cigar box guitar.  My project log for this is up on the wiki.

EDIT: The project is complete and the log updated!  Everyone who was at the 2/12 meeting got to see (and hear) it in person.
