thump:bit is a micro:bit robotic drummer kit for the micro:bit. It can be controlled wirelessly or run its own drumming code and is designed to be easy to use with the micro:bit orchestra extension for makecode so you can be up and running with your thump:bit in  no time!

The thump:bit PCB has two outputs that can drive solenoid electromagnets or other devices. The ouputs are 9V and are switched on and off by the micro:bit*. 

The circuit board is powered by a 9V battery with an on/off switch, and uses an onboard 3.3v regulator to provide power to the micro:bit

*micro:bit not included



ASSEMBLY:

 

Whats in the kit?:

  • Laser-cut parts for press-fit assembly of the thump:bit rabbit.
  • 1x thump:bit PCB
  • 2x neodynium magnets
  • 5 screws and threaded cylinders to mount the thump:bit PCB to a micro:bit
  • 1x solenoid electromagnet

if you select the "thump:bit mini + smol bunny" variant, you get an additional solenoid electromagnet and laser-cut parts for a second tiny bunny that is controlled by the larger bunny.

 

EXAMPLE CODE:

Setup a simple thump:bit rabbit:

https://makecode.microbit.org/v1#pub:54721-02655-30395-15346

 Your thump:bit rabbit will respond to radio messages with its name and a number. the numbers 0-4 correspond to different ways of striking whatever its standing on to make noise.

 

number 4 will make the thump:bit send a 9V pulse on output B for a "smol bunny" or whatever else you connect. 

You can test the different thump sounds with the A button, and cycle through the sounds to test with the B button. 

Pressing A and B at the same time will put the thump:bit in "dual thump mode" where it will alternate the different sounds between output A and output B

 

Set up a simple controller for your simple rabbit:

put this code on a different micro:bit

https://makecode.microbit.org/v1#pub:92236-69679-88829-43463

simply push A and B to send radio messages to your thumper

Set up a step sequencer controller for your simple rabbit:

put this code on a different micro:bit

https://makecode.microbit.org/v1#pub:48365-29199-18865-70468

- the blinking led on the right shows what rows you are adding notes to

- press A to change the row you are adding notes to

- press B to add a note to the row you have selected at the position the curser is on

- hold B to remove all notes on that row

- hold A + B to remove all notes and start fresh.
