Thanks to Nicolas for sharing this project with us!
I have always wanted some kind of LED VU-Meter because I like music and LEDs but all of the devices I found online had an integrated microphone or used a lot of pins (so a shift register was required), and I didn’t want that. I wanted to display on the VU-Meter only the music played on my PC, so I needed a PC-based solution. And this is it.
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.
