James DeVito has just launched a clever Adafruit Learning System tutorial for his Sitcom SFX Door Trigger that has had profound social engineering repercussions within the human population of those passing into and out of his apartment. People want to come stay a while but they hate to leave:
This guide is for people that wish they had a soundtrack to their life. Using a PIR sensor and magnetic door switch with a Raspberry Pi, you’ll be able to play a sound file every time you open a door. More specifically, it will play a pre-recorded sound file based on whether you are entering (applause!) or leaving (booooo!).
This project was conceived and executed along with George Michael Brower.
The Game Show SFX Door Trigger for retail stores is likely imminent.
