Making the Nap Button #PiDay #Python @Raspberry_Pi @ElectromakerIO
White noise can really help drown out sounds and help people relax and get to sleep – so 314Reactor on electromaker.io thought why not try a quick project with a Raspberry Pi to generate white noise or any sleeping aid sound with a the tap of a button.
The project uses parts on hand – a Raspberry Pi Zero and an older Pimoroni Speaker pHAT with a capacitive touch button.
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.
