FireHero – Arduino and guitar play with fire

Posted on Monday, April 23rd, 2012 in Arduino, demonstrations, project logs by the machinegeek


Chris Marion has developed an impressive and dangerous project: FireHero. It uses a complex propane system and some electric valves coupled to an Arduino controller that hooks directly into a “guitar” – a Guitar Hero input device, hence the project name “FireHero”. The result is that the notes played directly affect the flames. Now that’s a Dangerous Prototype!

You can read the complete project description on Chris Marion’s website.
