Turning New York City’s Subway Into a Symphony #MusicMonday
As commuting New Yorkers, this idea is music to our ears. From SmithsonianMag:
Think about the last time you were in a train or subway station. What did you hear? Clattering and squealing, probably, along with the loud, robotic beeps of train doors closing or people swiping train passes.
Musician James Murphy would like to change that. The former frontman for LCD Soundsystem wants to turn the New York City subway into an ear-pleasing electronic symphony. He imagines turnstiles that, instead of beeping, play melodic notes as riders swipe their cards to enter the system.
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.
