When You Need a Glam Audio Meter in a Hurry #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #Arduino #DIY
It’s always exciting to see a successful build, and this time it’s our LED Ampli-Tie. This one is by Tim Storsved who is a maker and lover of physics, although by the sound of his video, he may also be a well paid voice-over artist. I will say right now that I’m seeing some straight stitching lines with the conductive thread and the Neopixels look superb on the dark tie. Tim also decided to opt for the clip-on tie for those sudden award ceremonies; the press won’t notice what’s not under the collar. If you would like to get ready for your next big ceremony with plenty of shine, check out our learning guide for the Ampli-Tie. It uses our FLORA microcontroller, which has become a staple for wearable tech. It’s Arduino friendly and allows for stitching or soldering. The addition of a mic is the secret sauce for the Neopixels, allowing them to react to sound. So, get stitching before you get caught with a bland tie! We are here to share your video success story.
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.
