Issue 16 — HackSpace magazine – Automate your desk: Out-of-office box –

Tired of people dropping by your desk and leaving a Post-it notes cluttering the place up? Maybe you bought some biscuits to celebrate an occasion, but sadly you have back-to back meetings elsewhere?

Your own voice can be set in a box to have a welcoming (or non-welcoming) message, which will be triggered by a remote or a distance sensor.

This tutorial hinges on five basic components: the Adafruit Audio FX Sound Board, the HC-SR04 distance sensor, IR remote with matching sensor, a speaker, and an Uno.
