What is The Blade?
A chiptune keytar built by Greig Stewart, Sam Wray, and myself. It comprised of hacked Guitar Hero guitars, a Rock Band keytar, two Game Boys, an Arduino Mega, and a Raspberry Pi, and a Leap Motion.
We built the thing at BuzzJam, a 32-hour hackathon held at Red Bull Studios in London. It was presented and run by Young Guns Network, Sony Music, WMA, and We Make Awesome Sh.
The hackathon and project was super fun, and we managed to finish building it just in time for Them & Us to play it live! We ended up getting media coverage from the BBC and Vice.
