Behold the Azurophone!
As noted by Professor Thaddeus Westfield in his spurious dissertation to the Royal Society of Antiquities:
……”Purported to be an instrument of communication of an ancient secret society. A marvelous instrument that mysteriously receives musical tomes from the Ether. Lost to the ages, it briefly reappeared in the Harem of a Near Eastern Potentate as a device to woo his Courtesans and Concubines. Later it was refound in Constantinople and made its way to our cabinet of curiosities. Named Azurophone because of its marvelous blue glowing tube that indicates when receiving its incoming mystical signal.” ….
Well, not really. This is a modern Steampunk styled bluetooth player.
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.
