It’s easy to add music to your CPX using Freesound http://www.freesound.org and Audacity http://www.audacityteam.org which is a free download.  I will show you how to edit the music file and write a simple circuit python program to play music when button A is pressed. The circuit python program is written in the Mu editor https://codewith.mu/   Here are the cheat sheets that I use:   Continue reading Adding Music to your CPX

Jo highVoltage Gingerbread Pond with CPX, Crickit & CircuitPython

Jo highVoltage made a Gingerbread Pond where a gingerbread skater spins in the middle when a button on the CPX is pressed.  A DC motor is under the pond and is attached to a skateboard bearing which is attached to a piece of PVC board that is cut in a circle.  Using CircuitPython the CPX/Crickit is programmed to make the motor turn causing the skater … Continue reading Jo highVoltage Gingerbread Pond with CPX, Crickit & CircuitPython
