Robot Microbit Guitar Music

We have been working on out Micro:bit guitar project.
We started by Hacking our headphones to work with the micro:bits Microbit Guitars

Hacking Headphones

We made guitars with our artist skills and programmed the micro:bits to react to light and acceleration to make ‘Music” Micro:bit guitars part 2

We then make Robot masks, and video or still image backgrounds for our performance.

We videoed ourselves playing our guitars in from of the green screen and used iMovie to add these to our background Movies.

We have been working with our micro:bit guitars. We now control them with light and acceleration, the light controls the tone and the tempo is controlled by the acceleration.

To play the micro:bits you need to move it and control the light by waving you hand over it or putting near a light source.

Today we added two bits of tin foil on our guitars, and we will use this in the nearer future to turn it off or on.

Microbit Guitars

The Biggies have been using their coding and craft skills to build electric microbic guitars.

They had to learn to hack their headphones, make a guitar and code the microbits to play music controlled by light.

There is more to do, but we though it was worth sharing now!
