Just saw an awesome link on the main uCreate blog post I made a year or so ago. The ucreate by mattel has such huge potential for such a cheap toy, but due to it’s locked down system that potential hasn’t been exploited to it’s fullest.
Someone at mattel really needs to understand that these could become the next speak and spell for circuit benders and diy music nerds and they’d shift tens of thousands of units, if they’d just leak or open up the communication protocols for “hackers” to create new interfaces, load their own samples and create their own audio filters.
Well until Mattel gets with the program we have a new hope, and that’s Marbs, go check out his site, bookmark it and follow along as he works out how to unlock the full potential of these awesome little toys.
Marbs has been getting some help from Scragz http://scragz.com/ who was able to provide him some of the files before his uCreate arrived after being shipped half way round the world.
Wishing them both good luck with their endeavors.
