Potty humor in the most literal sense, this composting toilet will tell you a joke. The project uses the an MP3 shield, Arduino and PIR sensor to detect use and play a practical joke. The video also makes a compelling argument for composting toilets. Shared by Summer Files on YouTube:
It’s was a rainy day so we took our adventures indoors and had a little fun with our composting toilets. If you have never seen these kind of toilets, check out our video for a great explanation of how they work and how they are different from regular toilets. We then used Arduino electronics and programming to add a practical joke to our toilets.
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.
