Disco lights

Principiante | MakeCode, Python | Micrófono, Pantalla LED | Entrada/salida

Paso 1: Hazlo

¿Qué es?

Make your own disco light show with the new micro:bit! The LED lights pulse in time to music picked up by the built-in microphone. The louder the sounds, the brighter they glow.

Introducción

Guía de programación

Qué aprenderás

  • How to use the new micro:bit's built-in microphone sensor to measure how loud a sound is
  • How to vary the brightness of the LED display output in response to sensor input readings

Cómo funciona

  • The microphone measures loudness of the sounds it picks up as numbers from 0-255. 0 is the quietest sound, 255 is the loudest.
  • All the LEDs on the display are switched on when the program starts.
  • The brightness of the LEDs can also be set using numbers from 0-255. 0 is the darkest (off) and 255 is the brightest.
  • A loop constantly sets the brightness of LEDs to match the amount of sound picked up by the microphone sensor.
  • The louder the sound, the brighter it makes the LEDs shine.
  • Flash this program on to a new micro:bit with sound, play some music with a strong beat and watch the lights pulse in time to the music!

Qué necesitas

  • new micro:bit with sound (or MakeCode simulator)
  • Editor de MakeCode o de Python
  • pilas (opcionales)

Paso 2: Prográmalo

Paso 3: Mejóralo

  • Modify the program to use your own images or patterns
  • If you're in a class or group, flash the program on to multiple micro:bits, dim the lights, play some music and have a light show!
  • Can you make the lights get darker with louder sounds?
