Sean Hodgins walks us through his fake walkie-talkie project. It uses a radio module, GPS module, a VS1053 sound chip & more. The case is 3D printed to look like the vintage style handheld radios. The audio apparently is broadcast to a tour participants’ phone.
My best friend is launching an awesome project called Fake Ghost Tours and it’s absolutely hilarious. I had to make something for them!
The code is on GitHub here and the video is below. Great project!
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.
