Use the CRICKIT board with your Circuit Playground Express to control a cardboard animatroinc hand. Four servo motors pull the fingers into position using cable drive systems made from cord and straw guides. Program it all with CircuitPython to actuate as you press the capacitive touch controllers. You'll also learn to use the CRICKIT as an audio-animatronic controller with pre-programmed sounds and motions, such as counting in binary!
This project uses the Feather M0 Express, the Adalogger Featherwing and the AM2320 Temperature and Humidity sensor to gather data from the sensor and save it to the SD card on the Adalogger. You'll learn how to record data, and then take that data, import it into a spreadsheet and turn it into an awesome graph!
The DSP-G1 is a digital synthesizer chip modeled after an analog synth, that has three oscillators per voice, a +24dB filter, two ADSR envelope generators, LFO, and more, for a great, paraphonic, five-voice 80s synth sound! Control it using MIDI note messages with a Trellis or two for input, and six knobs to send MIDI CC parameters to the synth.
Are you ready? Really ready? Cause here comes the fastest, most powerful Metro ever. The Adafruit Metro M4 featuring the Microchip ATSAMD51. This Metro is like a bullet train, with it's 120MHz Cortex M4 with floating point support. Your code will zig and zag and zoom, and with a bunch of extra peripherals for support, this will for sure be your favorite new chipset.
