Everyone likes getting trophies. They’re shiny, have a nice heft, and feel great to hold in your hand. They’re visual and tactile, but decidedly lacking in the auditory department. Let’s fix that, shall we?
…The first step in your path to musical trophy greatness is to prepare the vibration switch. I prefer the “fast” model, but if you don’t want your circuit to be as sensitive you can order a medium or slow variant from Adafruit. Take the switch and solder a small piece of wire to the very thin wire coming out of the switch. This will allow us to put it in the breadboard.
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.
