Super fan project sent in by Nick. A real conundrum – to press the giant button begging for its life or not? Check out the full details from the blog:
If you don’t know what that is, it is the magical reset button that is used to reboot Janet. In the show, as you approach the button, Janet begs for you to not reset her in all of the hilarious and imaginative ways that you would expect.
The Adafruit “Music Maker” shield was perfect for this project. I used the Windows 10 Voice Recorder program to record my clips and then loaded them onto the SD card. The program is one big event and state machine to track the range of the person and status of the button press.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
