AMSC – Arduino Multimedia and Skype Controller #ArduinoD16
Thanks to Nicolas for sharing this project with us! Check out the full post on Instructables.
Imagine yourself watching a movie and, out of nowhere, someone calls you on Skype and because of that you get destracted and you need to rewind the movie to concentrate again. That kind of things shouldn´t happen. That’s the reason why I made this program.
Sometimes we all want something to control multimedia apps in a fast and easy way, as knowing the current playing song, pause it to view a video or listen to something else or just control the volume of the app. Now we can! And it also has a menu to display CPU and RAM usage and a Skype menu to make and receive calls! Oh, yes. And it is super easy to make! What could be better?!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
