Artist Rebecca Adorno has created this wonderful art installation, based on anonymous letters written on her project blog. She writes:
The installation consists of five custom made string instruments and a type writer, which will act as an interface for the interaction. The typewriter will be wired in such way that each key will correspond to a servo motor and each servo motor will correspond to a string in the instruments.
Her blog is still open to submissions, and you can see additional photos of the piece here.
Great work, Rebecca!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
