Thanks to So-Hee Woo for writing in about her great Longboard Radio project!
As an exploration of travel, this handcrafted longboard
indulges the user with radio stations that match the environments they pass
over changing volume based on speed. With a method of movement that puts an
emphasis on the relationship between the rider, the board, and the earth, my
vision was to find a way to heighten that interaction and allow the rider to
immerse themselves within the environment through music.
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.
