Geek Speak

The w27 USB I/O module features 44.1K / 12-bit audio conversion for high quality sound. It is also “DC coupled”, which means that in addition to sending and receiving signals like music, it can also send and receive control voltages. This allows you to use software programs like Max, PD, and CV Toolkit with w27 USB I/O to control littleBits modules by creating “virtual” littleBits modules like sequencers, low frequency oscillators, and much more. You can also control the aforementioned programs with littleBits modules to create hardware controls for your software.

The w27 USB I/O module will appear to your computer as an audio interface and its input and output routing can be selected as with any other audio interface. The module can only be selected as either an input or output device at a given time but multiple USB I/O modules can be used at once.

Their inspiration for this project came straight from the films, in particular, the magic wands that Harry and co use throughout the Saga. They went a bit above a typical wand though, using a pressure sensor alongside a fan, buzzer, and bar graph to make their wand light up...

  • Remote Controls are magical enough to recreate this awesome Death Eater Skull. You can switch it on from across the room and make it glow an evil green!
