Take any short clip of music and have it automatically start playing as soon as you pick up your cane and start walking. A few lines of code add illumination to a custom faceplate of your design, making the walking stick a gleaming beacon as well as a magically musical object.
In this project, a friend with a cane wanted to turn it into a Darth Vader cosplay, complete with Empire signet and the imperial march!
We'll use CircuitPython's easy capacitive touch and audio playback to make it happen
You'll need two decently strong magnets. These are very strongly attracted.
In addition to the above electronics, for this project you will need:
- A cane or walking stick
- Double sided foam tape
- Zip ties or rubber bands
- Access to a laser cutter (optional)
