Turning an old alarm clock into a music festival jukebox #Upcycling #Feather @gvy_dvpont
Guy Dupont took an iconic GE clock radio and turned it into a Bonnaroo festival time capsule.
No Bonnaroo in the past…to fill the 700-acre-farm-sized hole in my heart, I built a Bonnaroo time capsule/jukebox/mixtape into an old alarm clock that I found on eBay. You dial in a day, a time, and stage, and you would hear the artist playing there/then.
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.
