The Carnegie Mellon HCI gang is at it again, this time taking on the serious assignment of making a thing for PLAY. The Royal Play that is. The thing that makes life worth living.
This time, we’ve combined our nerd-ness to bring some of your favorite movie sound effects to life. The ” Augmented Hyper-Reality Glove” uses flex and tilt sensors to send signals to a Wave Shield from Adafruit Industries. The Wave Shield lets you trigger uncompressed sound files directly with Arduino, eliminating the need to call files from your computer.
When you punch with the glove you get a “punch” sound, when you make a pistol shape, a “gunfire” sound, etc. The possibilities are limited only to your imagination, and your world will be augmented by the sounds you normally only hear in your head or make yourself (legitimizing those embarrassing moments when other people hear you doing it).
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.
