NEW GUIDE: The Tilt Trumpet

NEW GUIDE: The Tilt Trumpet

Make a modern, futuristic instrument!

It’s time to make a brand new instrument! This instrument is inspired by the trumpet but is waaaaayyy cooler. Why? Because you can program it, and it has lights! How can we make an instrument with code and leds? I’m happy you asked! We’re able to do all this because of an awesome electronics learning platform by Adafruit called the Circuit Playground Express! It has buttons, leds, a speaker, a tilting tracker (formally called an “accelerometer”) and much more!

With your new instrument you’ll be able change the pitch and volume by tilting the Circuit Playground Express in various directions. Pretty cool!
