I’m hosting a Halloween party this weekend and I figured I’d see what I hack together with all these micro:bits I got lying around.
My first thought was that it’d be great if guests at the party could control the music using a micro:bit. Button A / B for the next / previous song, and perhaps a shake for to shuffle to the next song.
I’ll walk you through the steps I took to get this working. First, here’s a video of the final product:
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.
