Winfred, who is a Windows Systems Administrator, shows us a project for adding sound to a motorcycle using the Adafruit Wave Shield.
On a beautiful day I was thinking, wouldn’t it be cool if other devices also had start-up and shutdown tunes, just like your computer? For example, your TV, your car or your motorcycle? Since I was looking for a simple project to that uses an Arduino microcontroller, I decided to add the Windows XP Startup and Shutdown sounds to my BMW F650.
I love to see people having fun with projects like this!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
