Trinculo’s Attic will be introducing the latest additions to their line of theatrical electronics at USITT in Long Beach, CA this week. Visitors to Table #20 will be able to browse Ben Peoples’ new book Embedded Electronics for Theatre and see the company’s Juliet Candle and Lady M Phone Ringer in action. Books will be available for sale at the show, and as a show special, Trinculo’s Attic is offering free shipping on all product orders over $25 placed at USITT.
The new products being introduced are:
The Rosencrantz DMX Master Controller (MSRP $35)
A master controller that allows control of all Trinculo’s Attic devices from a single light board.
The Guildenstern Arduino DMX Shield (MSRP $20-$25)
A shield that attaches to an Arduino to input and output DMX signals. This add-on is intended for those who already have an Arduino, but wish to interface to DMX systems. The shield comes in both a full and mini versions.
The Stephano MIDI interface (MSRP $20)
A shield that attaches to an Arduino to input MIDI signals. This add-on is intended for those who already have an Arduino, but wish to interface to MIDI systems.
The Caliban Servo Controller (MSRP $50)
A dedicated controller designed for controlling up to three RC servos. These can be used as simple actuators for things such as projector dowsers, mobile props, and lever/latch releases within devices. The controller has knobs to adjust the end points of each servo’s travel and can be controlled via DMX or MIDI with an add-on module.
These other products that will also be demonstrated at the show:
The Lady M Phone Ringer (MSRP $75)
Rings any traditional analog or digital phone. The Guildenstern Mini and Stephano add-on boards allow for optional control via DMX or MIDI.
The Juliet Candle (MSRP $25)
A small, integrated LED candle module that simulates the natural flicker of a candle. The candle is programmable through the use of optional add-on modules to modify the way the candle flickers, provide remote control or allow the candle to react to its environment.
Embedded Electronics for Theatre ($39.95)
An indispensable resource for integrating miniature technology into theatrical props and practicals, this 248-page book introduces theory and design of electronic circuits and basic programming skills and provides an “electronics cookbook” of recipes for building specific circuits.
We’ll be at Table #20. Stop by, check out our goodies, and get your photo taken in a goofy jester’s hat. We’d love to see you!
