Bruce Lowther shared an in-progress video of the MIDI drum set project he is working on this week in our Community! Looks (and sounds) great so far.
Back in the electronics world again… Working on a MIDI drum set for my daughter. Using #ATMEL #ATMEGA328 and a whole stack of piezo sensors I got ebay.
Serial midi commands are begin sent to ‘Hairless MIDI’ application.
Featured Community Project from the Adafruit Blog
This week on the blog, we shared @tamberg’s awesome IoT Gauge project!
This Instructable by @tamberg (https://twitter.com/tamberg)
shows how to build a Web-enabled, Arduino-based IoT Gauge with a REST API, and connect it to the IFTTT.com mash-up platform, via the Yaler.net relay service. With the Maker Channel, IFTTT finally supports custom Webhooks, to integrate DIY IoT projects!(read more)
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.
