NEW GUIDE: Yoga Pose Chime @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit #yoga
New Guide Alert — John Park’s Yoga Pose Chime shows how you can build your own gentle pose timer that chimes a soothing tone when it’s time to move on to your next pose.
While practicing Yoga on your own, it can be helpful to use an interval timer to let you know when you have completed a certain pose. While there are myriad apps that offer this functionality that play a sound when the time is right, there is something wonderful about the sound of a physical gong being struck.
This project uses a CLUE board to display poses, proximity control to start your pose timer with the wave of a hand, and a solenoid striker to chime a singing bowl.
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.
