A Robot playing Guitar Hero

I’ve made some progress on my “Guitar Hero Robot” mod.  I dissected a used “Guitar Hero” guitar and wired its inputs to the nifty Arduino Duemilanove . Now the sensor input feeds the notes back into the X-Box.

I tried to keep the cost of this project down.  The Arduino does all the filtering of the sensor input, converting a shakey analog signal into an absolute on or off signal (thank you Chris Cordingley).

I will post a How-to along with the source code as soon as I’m finished.

    im working on a similar project but mine uses solenoids to push the buttons on the guitar.

    Have you finished this yet?

    I’m getting close, I ran in to some complications with Guitar Hero that make it difficult to play harder songs. I’m going to try and finish it by the end of the month. I’ll be posting all the details, and the Arduino code.

IMPORTANT! To be able to proceed, you need to solve the following simple math (so we know that you are a human) :-)
