Velosynth, an ‘Open-Source Bicycle Interaction Synthesizer

VELOSYNTH IS AN ‘open-source bicycle interaction synthesizer’ conceived by EFFALO. What is that?  Basically it’s a box one can strap to a bike that will make different sounds depending on how the bike is being ridden at any given moment. It accomplishes this by sending data from various sensors (speed, acceleration, direction, lean, et cet.), depending on how things are set up, to parameters like oscillation, amplification, and modulation. It will also apparently share data with other Velosynths in the area over a ‘microlocal’ network. The Velosynth website explains in more detail.
