Problem

I want to add a cool techie touch on my room when listening to music.

Quiero añadir un toque tecnológico a mi habitación cuando escucho música.

Solution

With just a microphone and a LED Strip we are going to do an equalizer!

Con la ayuda de un microfono y una tira de LEDs vamos a hacer un ecualizador!

Material

Tokymaker

Learn to code your own prototypes using the simple visual coding interface and just one finger and program it without installing software or connecting cables. Understand the principles os electronics connecting in the most intuitive way, a large variety of sensors and actuators.

Microphone

 microphone is an acoustic to electric transducer or sensor that detects sound signal and converts them into an electrical signal. This conversion is relatively direct and the electrical vibration can then be amplified, recorded, or transmitted.

LED Strip

There are 30 RGB LEDs per meter, and you can control each LED individually! Yes, that’s right, this is the digitally-addressable type of LED strip. You can set the color of each LED’s red, green and blue component with 8-bit PWM precision (so 24-bit color per pixel)

Code

Amazing gadget! I got it as a present from a friend and I’m still amazed. It only took me about an hour to assemble, and now I’m experimenting with its possibilities. Kudos!
