Build Your Music now has additional tutorials available. The purpose of these tutorials is to give you the reader a better understanding of how the different components of the robotic xylophone work. The tutorials also include example Arduino code which you may use for other DIY projects. The following tutorials are now live:
- User Interface – Shows how to use the I2C Character LCD and a Rotary Encoder to create a navigable menu or other user interface for an Arduino project.
- Mechanism – A close-up view of the solenoid and mallet mechanism which strikes the xylophone keys to play the notes.
- Motor Driver – Shows how to use multiple L293D Motor Driver Shields in a Master/Slave configuration to drive any number of solenoids from a single Arduino Uno.
