Playing Music with a High Voltage Arc #MusicMonday
We love ArcAttack, who make music with enormous Tesla coils in live performance. Now maker and musician Novus has made a desktop version. Here’s more from Sonic State:
Audio experimenter Novus has made a high-voltage music player using an ignition coil, seemingly outputting musical notes with lightening itself! In the video he demos the device and explains how a speaker works, illustrating the magnetic field interacting with a coil.
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.
