In this project, you’ll use the nOOds flexible LED filaments to make light-up visualizers to plug into your CV outputs. The nOOds are soldered up to audio jacks on either end to create a “cable”. The nOOds’ positive end is plugged into a CV output and then ground can be grabbed from any open jack. The waveform type and voltage affects the look of the LED.
This project will show you a fun way to use the new nOOds flexible LED filaments and a different perspective on CV signals.
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.
