Intro to Creative Coding with Processing
- Science & Technology
- HackPittsburgh Shop, Pittsburgh PA
Want a singing Tesla coil? Who doesn't! Each participant in this afternoon class will build a working solid state Tesla coil that puts out 6-8 inch long screaming bundles of high-voltage lightning, with an option for easy audio modulation using an Arduino or other square-wave tone source. Check out the video (embed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlsQt0_38tA). The $95.00 fee includes all parts, including a prewound 8 inch, 1000-turn secondary coil that's capable of producing 2-foot long sparks with the right drive circuitry. To keep a limit on time and money, the circuit we'll build is minimalist , but it'll provide a great foundation for experimentation and upgrades. Participants will need intermediate soldering skills: we'll solder about 3 dozen through-hole sized parts. Basic knowledge of power electronics and electromagnetism will be handy but not required.
November 10, 1:00 - 5:30
