I don’t know about you, but I have trouble waking up…just about every day. The one thing that helps me actually wake up and get moving in the morning is a nice shower. But…what if you could be woken up by the water?!?!
That is what I attempted to build here. I have wanted to build this for a long time, its actually the idea that got me started in working with electronics. But I never got around to making it. Just recently I decided I wanted to get back into building things, and I decided to go ahead and build this: An alarm clock that shoots water at me while I am in bed. Biggest issue with something like this is that it tends to get a lot of things wet, like water tends to do. But it was still a fun project to build, and I hope the rest of you enjoy it as well.
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.
