Making a Star Trek TOS Type 2 Bio Computer with sound #StarTrek #Props @therpf
From the Adafruit Forums, Jeff Kaler demonstrates a Star Trek the original series (TOS) medical computer (video above). The Type 2 Bio Computer would analyze samples with lights and sound and this is a very faithful recreation. Jeff writes:
The electronics are an Arduino Mega, (an Adafruit) Music Maker Shield, and (an Adafruit) TLC5947 (24-channel 12-bit PWM LED driver).
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.
