ETT Season 4, episode 8: Are you ready? I said, are you READY for this pioneering turntable snowboard?! In true hip hop fashion, Signal Snowboards put together the ultimate collaboration teaming up with one of the greatest DJs in history and contributing member of the Beastie Boys, Mix Master Mike, who not only provided direction on this build but also an original track for the episode. Custom board graphics come courtesy of artist MadSteez, and the clutch components including the turntable and mixer come courtesy of leading DJ equipment manufacturer Vestax. From the ultimate collab comes the ultimate DJ board complete with a functioning turntable and mixer. We tested it twice—the DJ capabilities were proven at the Vestax Store grand opening on Melrose street in downtown Los Angeles, and ride-ability was confirmed on the slopes of Bear Mountain, California jamming to Mix Master Mike’s custom track. Aw yeah!
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.
