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.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
