resonance-finder

A tool to help you find the resonance of objects in your room. Make sure you have a subwoofer.

Resonant Frequency

Setup

You need to install the Wavebender library before doing anything.

Usage

Playing the resonant frequency of an object is simple with these 3 steps:

  1. Find when the sweeper reaches resonance. Run
    python sweeper.py | aplay
    and a stopwatch simultaneously. When you reach resonance, record the time on your stopwatch.
  2. Get the resonant frequency from this time. Use the command
    python get_frequency.py 3.4
    replacing
    3.4
    with the number of seconds elapsed (the time you recorded on the stopwatch).
  3. Play the frequency. Use
    python play_wave.py 100.0 | aplay
    where
    100.0
    is instead the frequency from
    get_frequency.py
    in Hz.

Now you can troll people by shaking their desks/room/anything!
