Matt at DIY Perks strikes again. This guy does some of the most clever, meticulous builds on YouTube. His videos are like visual ASMR.
For this project, Matt wanted to create a speaker system for his desk instead of using bulky bookshelf speakers or sound bars which send all of the sound into your torso instead of your ears.
So, built a gorgeous sound deck that goes beneath his monitor out of cheap, recycled bamboo flooring. By making it himself, he got to choose exactly the speaker configuration he wanted and what electronics to drive it. The finish product looks and sounds amazing.
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.
