Description

Full Instructions at http://littlebits.cc/projects/iss Make your very own International Space Station and play music on it from afar. This project uses the same circuits as the Data Communication project, but here we are giving them some galactic context. How does it work? Your digitized music is converted into a series of light wave pulses. The pulses are decoded by the light sensor and converted into sound waves by the speaker. NASA uses electromagnetic waves to communicate with satellites orbiting Earth. littleBits makes an open source library of electronic modules that snap together with magnets for prototyping, learning, and fun.
