Giles Booth likes to try out new hardware by seeing if it can be made into a music player. This time, he’s used a micro:bit to control a Raspberry Pi’s music playing capabilities. By pressing A and B, he can change channels and by tilting the micro:bit from side to side, he can change the volume. The magic sauce that makes this all work is David Whale‘s bitio Python library which gives users of Python on a Pi, PC or Mac access to the micro:bit’s sensors and buttons. You can read more about this project on Giles’ blog here and you can find out more about the bitio library here. Get hold of a micro:bit from The Pi Hut. Giles takes you through the operation of the system in the video…

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
