Build A Music Playing, Curtain Opening Wakeup Machine

Build a musical curtain opening wakeup machine with littleBits. via instructables

A cloud-connected circuit that automatically opens up your curtains and plays a wake up sound every morning at sunrise (or other time of your choosing).

Using IFTTT we can send a trigger signal through the cloudBit at a scheduled time every day. This signal goes down both wires of the Split Module. On one end it causes the servo to pull the pin that is holding up a counterweight. When the pin is pulled, the weight falls, pulling the cord that opens the curtains. On the other end of the split, the trigger signal causes the mp3 players to start playing a sound file. This file is played through the speaker, which is hooked up to an old radio horn for amplification and general awesomeness.

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.
