This is an Arduino based iPod hackaudio project that allows you to select tracks for playback from an attached iPod Touch simply by placing cards on flat upper surface of the machine.
The cards can be placed in small plastic boxes with a picture of the album cover on one side to make small blocks more suitable for small hands to manipulate. Originally designed for disabled child. Since then people, teachers I know and so on, have been urging me to “do something with it” so this is an easier to set up and use quasi “tablet” version.
Membrane Matrix Keypad + extras – 3×4— Punch in your secret key into this numeric matrix keypad. This keypad has 12 buttons, arranged in a telephone-line 3×4 grid. It’s made of a thin, flexible membrane material with an adhesive backing (just remove the paper) so you can attach it to nearly anything. The keys are connected into a matrix, so you only need 7 microcontroller pins (3-columns and 4-rows) to scan through the pad.
We include a 7-pin extra-long header strip so you can plug this into a breadboard with ease.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
