I have launched a new website www.music-chat.com,
despite it's non-robotic name it will infact be dedicated to
musical communication for robots. Think about ringtones /
'Windows desktop' sounds etc. It's mainly coming from the
idea of robots interacting with society. I'll be including
projects along the lines of:
-The creation of sound schemes for Robots.
-Projects to play the sounds on any robot, whether it has a
PC based computer in it or not.
-Speech synthesis and also projects to put expression into
-Robots that play instruments, 'sing' or perform in some
-Various related robotic musical industry news.
I will be creating some sounds using various
musical equipment as one of my other interests is composing
music. I play drums, bass, keyboards, guitar and own a
clarinet as well as various software and hardware
synthesisers. Anything created here will be 'open source' in
that it will be free to download and will not be
copyrighted, anyone who wishes to contribute will be welcome
to do so.
There's not much content yet but I'll be adding some
things over the next few days / weeks and forever... you can
always sign up and post 'hello' in the forums if you like,
or suggest any project you'd like to see along these lines
and I'll build it...! (maybe)
In other news, I'll be updating
some more things this week. Still posting news at 914pcbots.com for the
rest of this month - Anyone remember the Tomy Omnibot?
