BoomBit: Music player for Micro: Bit
Micro: Bit is a name that fascinates every kid and enthusiast to learn more about programming and computers than just being the consumers of media. We have been using micro:bit for a variety of projects that helps us understand this controller's features and functions. We love to program with Micro:bit. But looks like there is something missing? Like a sound? But now, it comes with a twist! We introduce to you BoomBit, a speaker for your Micro:Bit.
Unlike other external wired speaker connections to the micro:bit, the BoomBit is a screwable speaker to the micro:bit making it pretty loud. Placed on the top using the 'P0', 'P3' and the 'GND' pins only, it is playing audio files using the micro:bit. It also lets you control the volume with a volume knob. It has a 3.5 mm audio jack port that lets you plug in your earphones and an audio switch mode that lets you change the mode from earphones to speaker.
Besides just learning to program, ever thought of or composing music or creating your own music player using the micro:bit?
BoomBit is the answer to this unusual pairing of the speakers and micro:bit. It is a speaker system for the micro:bit that doesn't use any cables or wires.
It is simply screwed onto the 3 pins of the micro:bit board (GND, 0, and 3v) making the micro:bit a compact stereo system and lets you play and compose any music.
Additionally, you can also make the LED's glow and dance based on the audio being played. Sounds fascinating??? (Make hurry to grab your reward now...)
Yes, it comes with an unbeatable scope for the sound and music compatibilities. You can also adjust the volume of the sound.
It comes with the development resources. The code and manuals will be provided along with the hardware.
The icing on the cake is added by the cases which got BoomBit covered. They are available in 5 different colors: Red, Green, Blue, White, and Black.
Its un-common but usual features are:
The BoomBit is itself a reward for the micro:bit. ;)
Although we have tried to keep the rewards best for our backers and they get the complete value from our campaign. The list of rewards are as follows:
Risks and challenges
Although being the largest manufacturer and seller of the single board computers and cases, the main risk in this project is that this audio player fulfills all the desired needs of a user using the Micro:Bit.
Our aim is to provide consumers with the best of the products we manufacture. Our team constantly works up on the latest technological challenges to make sure that we always stay updated with technology and engineering.
Fortunately, we have been trying through many prototypes over the last few months and were able to finalize a classic design for you. We have been able to make the final products without any roadblocks at all and our methods for producing the BoomBit PCB Boards are consistent and solid. The only concern we have is if we get more orders that we can produce in a timely manner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
