3D printers make various noises when they’re generating objects, but that’s not what this video is about. In this video objects are ranked by how much noise they make once printed! Maker Muse is judging by three criteria – ease of printing and assembly, Loudness in dBa at a 1 meter distance and a somewhat subjective “fun” factor 🙂
Interested in noisy projects? The Annoy-O-Matic Sound Prank Device guide in the adafruit learn system might be the perfect project for you. Check out the full guide to learn how to use a tiny Gemma M0 equipped with a piezo buzzer to pull a sneaky noise prank on an unsuspecting friend!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
