I was clearly inspired by this project by Phillip Burgess. But I wanted to build a more robust solution for cars, with 8 channels. I never designed a PC board before, so that was a fun learning experience. I had the PCBs manufactured, bought a ton of parts, and I am now putting these kits together. I can also sell a parts-kit and the blank PCB for anyone that wants to build it all themselves. As the original post mentions, this can be used for wearables, cosplay, toys, games, Halloween, or really anything that needs remote activated sound effects.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
