Digi-Key has recorded a series of summer break Circuit Playground projects for university students and is sharing them on Youtube.
Digi-Key cuts Noah’s summer break short tasking him with creating the Circuit Playground DJ Pizza Box project from Maker.io in Another Geek Moment – Summer Break Edition.
Noah chose the Circuit Playground for his project since it is a low cost, highly functional board that is quite easy to set up and run without much prior electronics experience. The Circuit Playground contains a temperature sensor, light sensor, microphone, and accelerometer. Using conductive paint and the capacitive touch capabilities of the Circuit Playground, Noah was able to complete his project and show off his DJ skills.
