JOIN US at 8pm EST TONIGHT Wednesday, 12/19/2018 for the live unboxing of AdaBox 010 — We’ll have a Q&A, live demos, and more!
Get ready to tune in for a special AdaBox 010 Unboxing take-over on Ask an Engineer! Join John Park at 8pm EST / 5pm PST this Wednesday, 12/19/2018 for the live unboxing of the Light-and-Sound-themed Rainbow Trellis AdaBox 010 — Ladyada and Mr. Ladyada will be in the chat to answer your questions!
This ADABOX is a multi-sensory feast – Lights! Sound! Squishy buttons! This box comes with a Trellis M4. It’s a grid of 4×8 silicone buttons, with a NeoPixel behind each one for rainbow glory. The engine is a ATSAMD51 microcontroller with stereo audio channels and microphone input.
Trellis is an all-in-one synthesizer, drum-machine, MIDI sequencer, audio filter, sampler…A DIY toy that will help you make any sort of music you’d like, so you can make the bleepy-bloops all winter long.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship and support from Analog Devices and Digi-Key, we’ve even included a fancy triple-axis accelerometer! Each Trellis M4 comes with an ADXL343 built right in, so your lights and music can react to movement and tilt.
