Gogo Gobo

An OpenSource Arduino project, for DJs who love Jim Henson. This device connects to your DJ controller (or any device with a standard MIDI output port) and dances to the beat of your music. Various movements and patterns are controllable via MIDI messages .

Here is the plan:

  1. Collect Resources
  2. Create Basic App
    1. Create Basic App with screen, buttons and menu prompt
    2. Create Github repo
  3. Prototype Midi hardware with optocoupler
  4. Program midi code, basic bpm detect and some movement patterns
  5. Prototype mechanics
  6. Assemble / Test
  7. Extended control with Midi Messages from DJ controller
  8. Party
