NEW GUIDE: Musical Walking Stick with CPX & CircuitPython #adafruit
This NEW GUIDE demonstrates how to create your own musical walking stick. Take any short clip of music and have it automatically start playing as soon as you pick up your cane and start walking.
A few lines of code add illumination to a custom face plate of your design, making the walking stick a gleaming beacon as well as a magically musical object. This walking stick can be easily adapted using CircuitPython to respond to different inputs -a great beginner project, no soldering required.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
