Intro: Build a Tiny Electronic Keyboard With LEGO and Faya-nugget
In my last Instructable, I demonstrated how to use Lego, an Arduino board and faya-nugget modules to build a fan: http://goo.gl/brQ9tR,
This time I am going to show you how to use faya-nuggets to create an tiny electronic keyboard,
Step 1: Material You'll Need
1. faya-nugget Touch-Slider module
2. faya-nugget Buzzer module
3. An Arduino compatible board (I use a nano compatible in this case)
4. A breadboard
5. Some Lego bricks, pick any kind you like.
Step 2: Wire It !
A0 <----> P0
A1 <----> P1
A2 <----> P2
A3 <----> P3
A4 <----> P4
A5 <----> P5
A6 <----> P6
A7 <----> P7
D8 <----> BZ
Step 3: Power It Up!
Connect all the power lines of faya-nuggets.
Make sure to connect all nuggets with red-black nugget power wire.
Don't forget to connect the 5V and GND with fayaduino Nano.
Step 4: Upload the Arduino Sketch
1. Open your Arduino IDE, select the Arduino board: Arduino Nano
2. Select certain comm port
3. Just copy-paste the sample code
4. That's all you need
You should be able to play some "music" (Actually more "noise" in my hand) with the touch slider botton
Step 5: LEGO Time!
Mount your nugget on the LEGO structure!
I prefer Technic series as always, but any type is OK (except Duplo I suppose)
Step 6: Close Ups
Just for your references.
You can find most of the faya-nugget @ MCM Electronics.
Step 7: Done
Now, it is your turn!
Play some music and share it!
