The Malinette is a free and open source tool to make interactive and multimedia systems. It is used by artists, students and teachers in labs, schools, colleges or faculties. For the Brutbox project, we use it also for musical workshops with autistics.
The software is a kind of framework and a graphical interface based on the fantastic Pure Data language and the work of its community. It is released under three different flavors, from newbies to experts.
We design a wood box shaped like a book to make it portable. It contains an electronic board Arduino and a coherent set of five sensors and five actuators. You can be build the box in a Fablab near you.
Focus on newbies, malinette-soft is the easiest way to start.
You download a single folder containing all we need: Pure Data, externals, malinette-ide and a startup script.
For advanced users
, malinette-ide contains the core of the project : the framework and the graphical interface. You need to install Pure Data and externals. It is the most up-to-date version
For experts, malinette-abs is the library of around 150 abstractions. It can be used in any other Pure Data projects by adding the path to your settings.
For makers, malinette-hw contains all ideas about hardware : the standard wood box design, a cardboard box, a wood box for Arduino MIDI, a webcam stand.
