My goal is to make a workable piano. Once I’ve made the piano, I want to be able to build a database of playable songs, to be able to play along to. Nothing fancy, like rock band, but just a simple piano app with songs that you can play along with. If you want to follow along, here’s my workable prototype that we’ll be working toward: https://my-little-piano-app.herokuapp.com/
This is a fun project, and would be a fun little game to make for your kids. So let’s get started. I’m breaking this project up into 3 main components:
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.
