Hello Again World

Well it's been a few months since I've posted anything but this past week has been exiting. I had a presentation at the Austin Dorkbot introducing the Planck.
The Planck is like a horizontal guitar one plays like a piano( by tapping on the strings) but that can do certain things like sound like a koto, sitar, or pedal steel. It can do some of these things because the frets are raised 1/4 inch and there
is a lot of space underneath the string to push it down. If you are familiar with scalloped fretboards and the Chapman stick it will make a little bit more sense.
People really seemed to like it and how it sounds when I debuted it.

In other news,I lost my internet service provider. I managed to archive my web pages, though.
I will post them online as soon as I can get some web hosting. Sorry, Don't mean to be so mysterious about it. I will do a page about the Planck for sure.

I also got to hang out with some folks from Make Magazine last week. They were very cool and might be planning some fun stuff for Austin. Who knows? I hope it works out.

As for Dorkbot, you should check out if there is one in your town especially if you are an inventor or do strange things with electricity.
