Beatboxing with LV FPGA and PXI

File this one under "Coolest Things I've Ever Seen." Vineet samples himself beatboxing and singing. He can do this multiple times until he is giving himself a full backing melody.

His mic is hooked into a PXI-7831R running LabVIEW FPGA. The performance is from the NI Live Talent Show we have once a year; this one was on July 12 2007.

Watch this one to see Vineet turn it up a notch!

Try doing that with an oscilloscope!

NIWeek 2007

NIWeek 2007 starts next Tuesday, August 7th at the Austin Convention Center! This year, instead of simply attending, I'm giving a presentation! Here's the info:

Date / Time: Wednesday August 8th, 3:30 PM. Room 16A.
Title: Documentation Dividends: Help that Pays Off
Abstract: Well-planned product documentation can save time, reduce customer frustration, and improve your product’s reputation. Discover how LabVIEW can help you create and deliver effective documentation. Also learn tips from NI technical writers about optimizing the documentation process and getting the most out of documentation on LabVIEW.

Come learn how documentation can improve your product. We'll also discuss tips for planning and creating documentation and the different ways in which you can deliver documentation.

I invite you all to attend, and if you have any questions or comments for me, I'll be happy to answer them at the session.
