DIY Flora Piano Glove #AdafruitWeekendProject

Convert color to music with a wave of your finger with this Adafruit Piano Glove tutorial.

The PianoGlove uses a TCS34725 to sense colors, a NeoPixel LED to ‘play’ those colors back visually, a VS1053 Codec board to play them back aurally, and a Flora wearable microcontroller to handle all the conversion & communication between them.
Prerequisite guides:
Getting Started with FLORA
Flora NeoPixels
Adafruit Color Sensors
VS1053 Codec Breakout Tutorial (MIDI Section)
To build your own PianoGlove, you’ll need the following items:
Flora
VS1053 Codec Breakout (includes 3.5mm jack)
Lithium Ion Polymer Battery
Flora Color Sensor
Flora RGB Smart Neo Pixel
Perma-Proto Half-sized Breadboard PCB
Fabric glove
Wire
Needle & thread
Soldering iron & solder
Wire cutters
Computer & USB cable to program Flora
In this tutorial, we’ll be using an inexpensive black glove from a costume shop, but do feel free to experiment & improvise with any other types of gloves, wearables, or whatever inspires you.
Once you’ve gathered all your gear, we can move on to building the electronics …

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
