This Instructable will hopefully give you all you need to put together a reactive music led table.
I based it on the Music Visualiser at Music Visualiser – Adafruit. The code is from there, the circuit is from there – all I really created was a big led matrix, and put it into an Ikea table!
Really, I wanted to make a full arduino tetris table, but I had most of the spare parts and wood available to make this, so that’s what I did.
As a picture is worth a thousand words, there are lots of pictures as I hate writing!
Start with an Ikea Lack table – the matt white was on special at £5, so that’s what I used.
Draw a square on the table – mine was 40cm * 40cm – giving me 5cm2 sections.
Not knowing what the table was made of, I cut a small hole to look inside.
Happy with what I found, I cut the square, and removed the honeycomb cardboard inside.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
