Material & Resources
● The following musical instrument , Indonesian Kalimba
is what I am thinking of using to control the LED's. Looks like a cute little instrument and sounds sweet as well.
● The Knowles SPU0414HR5H-SB-7 sensor Analog Microphone
was used for testing but the Sparkfun Sound detector
was being used as the final input drvice week and to record the sound from the source, which can be the above instrument.
● And the following Adafruit Neopixel LED
will be used as the output device which shall be connected to the mic and programmed in such a way that the LED responds to the recorded sound of the mic.
● The 12mm transparent Acrylic
will be used to produce the spines of the lamp which were made in wood before for my Week 08
shopbot assignment. I changed my mind on using the transparent acrylic, which will make the LED lights look better in the combination with them to reflect and showcase the same.
● Although, I shall still be using the shopbot and the 12mm Plywood
to cut the top and bottom base for the lamp as I have tested the slot joint for the wood and acrylic and it fits perfectly fine. Also Wendy recommended me to do the same, because the acrylic fitting in to each other makes it more brittle and it's always good to use diversified materials for the final project and work on the shopbot again.
● The below images shows the full set of components and material, Wendy asked me to do that which was quite helpful and I just got most of the parts which will be used and put them all together just to understand the placement and integration of the components, so I played around a bit with all.
