The Milklymist One is a basically a mini-computer which creates visuals similar to MilkDrop. You can also mix in live video and add effects in real time.
I’ve always wanted to own one but because it was produced in a small number back in 2011, it has been difficult to find any.
Luckily there is decent amount of information online, making it possible to build one… I’ve been working with circuit building for the last year and have been tackling projects with increasing difficulty in order to get better and better. Milkymist seems to be the most difficult. For example: the Milkymist’s 6-layer PCB has an excessive amount of SMD components and loading the System-On-Chip software onto the microprocessor is baffling to me.
Was hoping with the help of this community and possibly get some guidance in building this project.
If I feel confident in being able to build this project I will have extra PCBs created and if others wanted to help with the build I am sure we could arrange getting enough produced for everyone.
Let me know if you would like to help.
Here is a webpage which thoroughly describes the Milkymist One
There is a wiki type page with mostly all the information need to manufacture the hardware for the Milkymist One
And a GitHub with all the software
Also, some videos of the Milkymist in action
Wishing everyone the best in their visual creations.
