From the forums: Retirement gift made with Adafruit Audio FX Sound Board

NewImage

Nice project from robertd5 in the Adafruit forums!

Hello

The Principal of our school retired and as you might imagine he always had some good lines.

So I made the “Ask Rich”, that with the press of a button the advice keeps coming.

The bust is a 3D printed scan of him created using Skanect and the Xbox 360.

The Box is from a Hobby store that has a Lobby.

The on/off switch is one I had laying around.

The rest is from Adafruit

Adafruit Audio FX Sound Board + 2x2W Amp – WAV/OGG Trigger -16MB

Large Arcade Button with LED – 60mm Red (I replaced the original LED with a color changing LED)

(2) Speaker – 3″ Diameter – 4 Ohm 3 Watt

Lipo Back Pack

and an Adafruit LiPo battery.

Here is quick video.

Thanks

Adafruit Audio FX Sound Board + 2x2W Amp – WAV/OGG Trigger -16MB: Would you like to add audio/sound effects to your next project, without an Arduino+Shield? Or maybe you don’t even know how to use microcontrollers, you just want to make a sound play whenever you press a button. What about something that has to be small and portable? You are probably feeling a little frustrated: it’s been very hard to find a simple, low cost audio effects trigger that is easy to use and does not require any programming UNTIL NOW! Read more.

Large Arcade Button with LED – 60mm Red: BAM! This 60mm diameter arcade button is large and inviting and ready for all sorts of pressing and pushing. We’ve seen these on some games of skill in arcades, they’re easy to mount on nearly any kind of enclosure. They’re not waterproof or weatherproof, so best used indoors. Read more.
