Make A Screaming Jelly Baby #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Great Raspberry Pi project for students using Jelly Bellys. via raspberrypi.org
You will learn how to turn a jelly baby into an input device for your Raspberry Pi. You will then create a program to make it scream when it is squeezed.
By following this tutorial to make a jelly baby sweet scream, you will learn:
• What GPIO pins are and how to connect them to real work objects
• How to create a program to play a sound when the jelly baby is squeezed.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
As well as a Raspberry Pi with an SD card and the usual peripherals, you’ll also need:
• Speakers or headphones
• 2 x female-to-female jumper wires
There are no additional software requirements for this resource beyond what is pre-installed in the current Raspbian image. To make sure your SD card is up-to-date, see the updating Raspbian guide.
You’ll also need:
• A jelly baby
• 2 x metal paperclips or dress pins
