Source Audio Hot Hand (http://rbi.ims.ca/4927-541). This motion-controlled effects unit allows guitarists to use hand motions instead of foot-operated pedal boards to provide unique, expressive sounds including 11 different effect types. A calibration control in the interface console allows adjustments of range, motion and speed of responsiveness. An Analog Devices’ ADXL320 iMEMS dual-axis accelerometer mounted on the guitarist’s finger provides the motion sensing. The accelerometer’s 4 x 4 x 1.45 mm plastic lead-frame chip-scale package (LFCSP) allows mounting on the finger. The unit’s ±5g range is well within the range of motions generated by a guitar player’s hand. For more information on Analog Devices ADXL320 accelerometer go to: http://rbi.ims.ca/4927-542.
A make-your-own Star Wars Sith Lightsaber hilt is heftier and better-looking than most others out there, according to its maker, Sean Charlesworth. You can 3D print it from free source files, and there's even a hardware kit available -- not free -- so you can build one just in time for Halloween.
