Cylon Pumpkin with Sound Effects

Mike writes in:

I was hoping to show this off on Show & Tell but it did not come to pass. As you had asked about projects using Adafruit products, I had built a Cylon Pumpkin with a twist – using a Wave Shield and infrared remote to trigger sounds and turn on or mute the eye sound.

I had originally had a problem with the Wave Shield not working but your eagle-eye support forum moderator spotted a potential cold joint (even where I thought I’d touched them up). My thanks to the support. I decided after the build that I needed a better soldering iron so I ordered a Hakko from you and will put it to good use.

Thanks for the great customer support, creativity in what you stock, and the Adafruit Learning Center helping to show the potential of your products.

Now to build a voice changer with the pumpkin’s Arduino/Wave Shield and one of your electret amplifier boards :)


waveshield

Adafruit Wave Shield for Arduino Kit – v1.1 – Adding quality audio to an electronic project is surprisingly difficult. Here is a shield for Arduinos that solves this problem. It can play up to 22KHz, 12bit uncompressed audio files of any length. It’s low cost, available as an easy-to-make kit. It has an onboard DAC, filter and op-amp for high quality output. Audio files are read off of an SD/MMC card, which are available at nearly any store. Volume can be controlled with the onboard thumbwheel potentiometer.
