As the number of my guitar pedals grew, the decision was clear to build a pedalboard. Then I thought, why not add some light, so I can see the knobs in the dark. And then I found out about those programmable LPD8806 strips with libraries for Arduino and Raspberry Pi. That was when things blew out of proportion… so now the result is a mixture of light organ and pedalboard. It can turn sound into light using pitch detection and sound volume with a little help from a Raspberry Pi. It features several animation modes and a Tuner, a visual metronome and more to come.
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.
