Taters ‎- DIY talking Mr. Potato Head


Marc writes

Taters is an audio memory box I made as a gift for my beautiful wife. When you pick him up and tilt him right, he says compliments. Tilt him left, and he tells funny stories. Tilt him forward and he may kiss you or vomit. Lay him down, and he goes to sleep and starts snoring. I made audio recordings of Anne’s friends for most of the comments. Also, if left alone for too long, he becomes bored and will say/do things on his own, like breaking glass or playing with a squeaky ball.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
