Jamie Robertson, Creator of the MP3 Trigger


About the Project

Jamie Robertson is a Disney Imagineer turned interactive art enthusiast. For this project, Jamie needed an MP3 player that could respond smoothly to volume controls. After a frustrating search at electronics stores, Jamie decided to build his own. What he ultimately created was the MP3 Trigger - now a SparkFun product. 

About the Photo

This photo shows Jamie with his MP3 Trigger and the artwork it was featured in.  This picture was taken by SparkFun photographer Chris Rojas in Boston, MA using a Canon 5D Mark II.
