Another in-progress proof of concept for the treasure chest project. In this one I wanted to use a potentiometer to add an analog volume control for the music maker wing vs the digital approach I coded earlier using two buttons for volume up and down.
Here, I’m learning how to map the voltage range coming in from the potentiometer to a range I can use to determine the number of neopixels to light up.
Now that I have this code written and troubleshot I’m going to apply the same logic to the volume controls for the music maker wing 🙂
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
