A Dutch “paper engineer” has managed to squeeze all of the functionality of the Nintendo Labo cardboard piano into a pop-up book. The pop-up piano, which uses a Joy-Con controller to control the companion Nintendo Switch game, includes a full set of 13 keys, an overdrive button, and the ability to change between multiple effects by inserting different effects keys. You can even prop the piano’s lid open using a small cardboard arm.
Jean-Paul Leconte’s creation does all of this, while handily avoiding one of Labo’s greatest flaws, which is that once you’ve assembled all of your kits, you’re left with a house that’s filled to the brim with bulky cardboard creations. In contrast, this cardboard piano folds down into a book that’s no bigger than a typical hardback.
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.
