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.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
  • Geoff: Is it still Sunday somewhere? If so, yes please.
