You may already know The FoldaRap (http://reprap.org/wiki/FoldaRap), an open-source 3d-Printer, easy to assemble, and most important : foldable to bring it everywhere ! After a first version and 30 prototypes I'm looking to make a second batch for the version 1.1. And to make it available for more people I need you to be a part of it. 3D-Printer, RepRap, what's all about ? 3D-Printing is an additive manufacturing process : layers of plastic are successively laid down to produce objects relatively quickly. This allows to produce some pieces that would have been difficult to make with conventional processes (machining, injection), and contrary to molding there is no tooling. Hence it is often compared to our traditional printers : with a digital file and a raw material we can make all sort of things at demand (fused plastic replacing the paper+ink), simply by changing the file sent to "print". We are still far from the Star Trek Replicator, but on the way... The technology of 3D-Printing is not new, but there have been a big change around 2006 : the team of the Dr. Adrian Bowyer (Bath University, UK) made the firsts RepRap (Replicating Rapid-prototyper) - a 3D-Printer which can prints some of it's own parts. However, the beauty of this invention resides not in itself but rather in choosing an open-source license (learn about it here http://reprap.org/wiki/Wealth_Without_Money ). Quickly a vibrant community arose around this project, the propagation became exponential and variations started to flourish (see the RepRap Family Tree http://reprap.org/wiki/RepRap_Family_Tree). A technology which was only accessible to industry and big companies is now at hand of any enthusiast tinkerer. While 3D-printing makes it's way in schools, garages and homes, people start to make or try lot of things by themselves, useful or not, sometimes truly practical when it came to fix stuff or for custom-made parts. Looking at sharing platforms like Thingiverse, CubeHero, etc. reveals how creative everyone can be... what do you imagine then ?

Do you want to make your own control interface? And do you want to control all the software and hardware you use for your multimedia projects with it? In addition.... Do you want it to have an attractive, flexible and open source design? Stop beating around the bush! The thing you want is BHOREAL. BHOREAL is an Open Source interface based on the Arduino platform that allows to control all types of software and hardware using a surface with RGB LED-backlit pushbuttons. You can use it as OSC/MIDI device to trigger samples live, as sequencer, synthesizer, rhythmbox, pitch map generator or remote control. It can also work in standalone mode as algorithmic and generative driver, mathematical simulator, game interface, low resolution LED display or any other kind of application you can imagine. Thanks to its versatility, BHOREAL is a fundamental tool for DJs, VJs, musicians, artists, hackers and all kinds of creative DIY people willing to explore a piece of hardware which is infinitely reconfigurable and reprogrammable. The BHOREAL controller allows to overcome the constraints imposed by conventional device manufacturers. Its Open Source essence makes it possible to modify and adapt the tool freely. For the last few years, MID´s team has been working on this interface in order to maximize its flexibility and provide adaptable configurations for each user needs. On the basis of these premises BHOREAL is available in four different models: two DIY self-assembly kits and two “ready-to-use” preassembled units . Both hardware and firmware are completely Open Source and are released under Creative Commons licenses. BHOREAL is Windows/Mac OS/Linux compatible.
