PCB Design and Manufacturing:
Check out all the fancy things I've learned about using the Roland Mill to carve circuit boards designed in Protel.

The Jelly Form sculpture uses an audio preamplifying circuit designed by Gian Pangaro. Pressure on the surface of the Jelly Form locally increases the volume of her voice, so that it seems to follow you as you touch or walk on her. The current voice-modulating circuit lives on a breadboard that is wrapped up in tin foil like a burrito. It is noisy and fragile. This PCB will replace the breadboard circuit.

This circuit modulates an audio signal in response to resistance changes in four FSR sensors. FSR's decrease resistance in response to mechanical pressure. In this circuit, a stereo input signal is split across 4 preamps that each change volume in response to an FSR. The four outputs are run through two typical stereo amps and speakers.
