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 🙂
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.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
