Do you want to record your audio files like a pro? Probably you would love to… Well… in fact everyone loves to. Today your wishes will come true. Presented here is the Coco-Mic – Which not only records quality audio but also “MEETS THE EYE” . This awesome piece is a whole package with a DAC sound card , M.E.M.S technology Microphones which when connected to the computer or the laptop provides studio quality sound recording.

You may ask why not just buy a GOOD quality mic from the store? well .. those mics cost above $100. Why spend so much money when you can make one for under $8! Moreover.. You can proudly say that you have made it!

Here’s the list of the materials you need to get before you begin.
1) USB soundcard ( With Mic input )x 1 ($1.03)
2) MEMS Mic x 2 ( $ 1.68 * 2 = $3.36 )
3) Medium sphere shaped coconut. x 1
4) 0.1 uf capacitor x 1
5) Female USB port & USB Cable male to male (One each )
5) Coffee strainer ( for the circular mesh) x 1 ( I had at home )
6) Coconut scraper (I had at home)
7) Basic tools and soldering skills.

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.
