In this GreatScott video, Scott addresses a pet peeve that I have, too. In watching films (and shows) on your TV, often the volume during dialog is low and if you adjust for that, the music and action sequences get too loud, forcing you to have to “ride” the volume control.
Scott, always one to explore a technical solution, came up with a device that automatically adjusts the volume on his TV set. Watching how he approaches the problem and iterates his way to a solution is informative and entertaining.
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.
