Glockenspiel & Raspberry Pi @raspberry_pi #piday #raspberrypi
YouTube user I Roulson made this nifty glockenspiel using his raspberry pi!
I found this Glockenspiel in a local recycling centre and it looked like the ideal instrument to control with a set of motors and a Raspberry Pi. I’ve seen this done before, both with the PICAXE and the Raspberry Pi, so the idea isn’t my own.
-The parts are designed using 2d design software and cut out on a CAM router.
-Assembly is with hot glue and a bunch of 3mm screws.
-The breadboard contains a couple of ULN2803 Darlington Drivers.
-Software written in Python and using the GPIO on the Raspberry Pi.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
