…we were motivated to develop a fun way to keep people active and healthy indoors! MuSticks combines the ideas of music and sticks to make exercising indoors practical and fun. It is important to maintain your health and remain active during these difficult times, and we hope MuSticks can help people in this small way.
The project uses a Raspberry Pi Zero W, Adafruit Stereo Speaker Bonnet, and Surface Bone Conductive Transducer speaker. We decided to use transducers for its interesting properties of transducing the audio wave signal on hard surfaces. We decided to use plastic bottles, but you can experiment with different materials.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
