Sequencer Integrated With a Bicycle Wheel #MusicMonday
David Hilowitz has spun up a sequencer on a bicycle wheel. He’s using a young engineer’s science kit, some headphones, and some tin foil. Here’s more from Laughing Squid:
In this video, I combine a children’s science kit with a bicycle wheel, resulting in a makeshift music sequencer.
…if we want the notes to play at different times …since each jack corresponds to a different note we can just change which cable is plugged into which jack and get a completely different sequence, of course, with the same rhythm.
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.
