Nuclear missile silo keyboard repurposed for usb

(1/2) > >>

Gothic (John), a programmer and electronics savant, who used to handle server administrator for DonationCoder, had a project featured on today.  Very cool stuff.

He found a weird old keyboard (with trackball) on ebay and it turned out to come from a nuclear missile silo.  After some work with an Arudino board he got it talking to USB interface.  Very cool.

Make sure you check out John's video:

Highly watchable.

When I saw John in real life over thanksgiving, I thought I would flex my youtube creator knowledge, and warned him about getting a copyright strike on the music playing in the background.
To which John replied that he had created the music himself, specifically for the video.
To which I thought, yes, of course you did, John.  Of course you did.

Yep :) I made it using the sunvox tracker - which is a great little piece of software. ( )
Here's the original file, so you can make your own version of the song and/or mess with it:

There's not a single recorded sample in there, it's all generated with synth modules on the fly - which sunvox is great at.

( can this count as my NANY? :D )

Highly watchable

Interesting stuff.  I am curious about one thing though.  Has anyone scanned this keyboard with a Geiger counter?   8)
