The Octo Basher
Design - Concept
To extend the value of the OctoBanger Software
Create a plug and play circuit board & accessory that allows full control of keyboard keys, (toggle play & pause button etc.)
OctoBanger + OctoPill + OctoBasher = A whole lot of awesome packed into a little ECO System. I've been fiddling with the idea of an accessory that plugs into any PC and allows a user to fully control (Puppeteer) a RTPE (Real Time Programming Environment. that works well enough to get the FM stamp of approval.
When I hit Key01 through Key08 on the OctoBasher. Output 01 - 08 on the OctoPill's relay module will turn on in real time. No need to go back and forth to see if your timing is off. Just Bash some Keys until you have a really cool show recorded and you’re done (until next year of course.)
With the OctoBanger Software from ButtonBanger It's now possible to do this plus its FREE. They do accept donations for all the hard work that goes into making such a program & I recommend shooting them a few bucks to help with future projects. They provide detailed instructions on how to create your own prop controller as well as other exciting DIY setups. They've provided a ton to the haunt community. If you benefited and saved $$$ pay it forward.
