This awesome project was sent in to us from Karl! Thank you!
This tune is called “Joy to the Beat”. In this episode of “Make it do music” I hacked our Christmas tree to play a music. A TREE-board if you will !!!! the most difficult part was finding Bobbles that were conductive. Most of them are made out of glass!! Also, things get progressively more Christmassy. This is the consequence of playing this instrument!!!!
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.
