The world’s first USB-C AirPods (via a mod) #Apple #AirPods #Hacking
Ken Pillonel has built the world’s first AirPods with a Type-C port for charging. The mod is working on the first and second generation so far.
After creating the first USB-C iPhone in the world, Ken decided he needs to bring his skills to the other Apple product he uses daily that is still missing this common sense port.
This trailer (below) shows the final result of the hack with some quick shots from the full-length video currently being edited. The whole project will be made open source.
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.
