Every icon has a story. Mine is adapted from the Breaking Baud demo by CRTC and 3LN pouet.net/prod.php?which=62934 . Written in 2014, for a machine released in 1984, and instead of loading all the data before it can run, it uses the act of loading the data (from audio cassette at 2688 baud!) as the central theme.

That reminds me, I need to add 80's style audio data transfer to the mechanical keyboard wishlist… coming to a USB port near you in 2030 (subject to change).

Hello everyone! I'm Andy, and I'm so excited to be here!

I'm a sysadmin from Cambridge in the UK, and have earnt a Merveilles invitation by hacking about with @neauoire's Uxn. I think my contributions span three lines of code so far!

I'm in the middle of a mechanical keyboard building project, inspired by @Kooda here. It's gone on for ages and might be suffering from feature creep. I'm sure by the time it's running Uxn and I can phone and SMS people with it, it'll be finished.

As soon as you ditch The Big Three #git hosts (GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket), you realize how difficult and/or inconvenient all modern tech tooling is.

We're not in a good shape.

Just pushed to the Uxn repo some simple sound support! 🎶 If you're excited by square waves without envelope support, you're in the right place!

I've also spoiled @neauoire's lovely clock example by getting it to ding a note every second 😈 so you'll need to mute to enjoy reading the time!

I'm no cassette fan, but this synth is pretty cool. =:D

Touch sensitive keys, two rotary encoders, two light sensors for Theremin-like playing, and all USB-powered.

Cycled to work today. Haven't been on my bicycle for ages since I work from home.

So lovely to see the bees flying about.

Now when you see bees flying into a headwind faster than you can cycle, you gain a new appreciation of your fitness level.

Just pushed to Uxn repo: running the VM without the GUI window, and the beginnings of an automated test suite 😀

Merveilles

Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
