John will be talking about his hack of the famed Happy Chewbacca Mask, replacing the mask’s “wookie sounds” with any sound file for custom sound effects. The sounds are stored on an Adafruit Audio FX Mini Sound Board which means no microcontroller coding is needed!
These will be two fun talks among a hundred other talks among hundreds of artist, maker, designer, and engineering projects at World Maker Faire!
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
