velosynth is an open-source bicycle interaction synthesizer. it interprets the speed and acceleration of a bicycle into expressive audio feedback. this feedback loop helps to increase awareness of the cyclist within the transportation environment — much to the same way one can both hear and see a vehicle approaching. it is designed for user modification, completely open-source, and released under creative commons share-alike license.
after a year of research and development, we're very excited to offer a super-alpha, hella-low-level kit. this release is primarily aimed at hacker-savvy cyclists familiar with microcontrollers, electronics, and programming.
it is our hope that these kits end up in the hands of creative, self-starting individuals keen on sharing their ideas and documenting their work. we believe in open source and need your help to explore the possibilities of bicycle-based computing!
we're operating under a very tight timeline and razor-thin margins to get these kits delivered to the right people for a whole summer's full of hacking and experimentation. needless to say, we'd appreciate your help in spreading the word to anyone you think might be interested.
