Interactive touch art with sound, provided by CircuitPython #ArtTuesday #CircuitPython #Feather
Austin Fisk with Rashea Minor have created two interactive art projects.
Rashea painted the giraffe and frog with both conductive (electric) and non-conductive black paint. Each animal has a mode controller touch spot and multiple other touch spots that play sounds. The mode controller swaps out the sounds that play with other sounds. This project uses compressed .mp3 audio files instead of uncompressed .wav in order to pile more files into the limited space of the embedded system.
A Frog Touch Painting has different sound modes. There are 11 different “sound” touch spots and one “mode” touch spot with two different possible sound modes, creating a total of 22 possible sounds. The modes can be changed by touching the frog’s eye.

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.
