#PugProse helps you communicate with your pet #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Bare Conductive presents Pug Prose made with the Pi Cap!

If you’ve ever wished you could communicate with your pet, then you have something in common with Bibi, Aslak and Szymon. We ran a Pi Cap workshop in late July to find out what people would do when equipped with our latest product, the Pi Cap, and they were one of the teams invited to participate.

The Pi Cap is a Raspberry Pi add-on which allows you to add precise capacitive touch, proximity sensing and high quality audio to your Raspberry Pi projects. It works with the Raspberry Pi A+, B+, Zero and later (any Raspberry Pi with a 40 pin GPIO connector).

When given the opportunity to test our fully featured libraries and online tutorials, Bibi, Aslak and Szymon decided they’d use the Pi Cap to give Rory – the office pug – the ability to speak. Using a Pi Zero and our capacitive touch code example, they wrote a program that would give Rory voice when he lay down, got stroked, or when anyone tweets to the hashtag #PugProse.

Needless to say, the project got a great reaction from the crowd, not only because of the amazing outfit, but because it was a great example of how the Pi Cap and Pi Zero could be used to create a small portable wearable.
