Bliptronic Arduinome

What is it?

The combination of a cheap physical interface (Thinkgeek Bliptronics 5000) and some custom electronics to yield a Monome ( clone.

What do I need to build one?

  • Bliptronics 5000
  • Arduino (I use the Arduino Pro Mini + a USB breakout board)
  • Prototyping board
  • 8 x 10k pulldown resistors (or a resistor network?)
  • Some soldering skills
  • Software:


  • Analysis of Blitronics circuitry complete
  • Circuit design complete
  • Arduino programming complete
  • Initial tests complete

To Do

  • Make some sounds!
  • Fit the mess back into the box
