This time, we've combined our nerd-ness to bring some of your favorite movie sound effects to life. The " Augmented Hyper-Reality Glove" uses flex and tilt sensors to send signals to a Wave Shield from Adafruit Industries. The Wave Shield lets you trigger uncompressed sound files directly with Arduino, eliminating the need to call files from your computer.
When you punch with the glove you get a "punch" sound, when you make a pistol shape, a "gunfire" sound, etc. The possibilities are limited only to your imagination, and your world will be augmented by the sounds you normally only hear in your head or make yourself (legitimizing those embarrassing moments when other people hear you doing it).
Team: Becca Chen, Zack Jacobson-Weaver, Jimmy Krahe & Spencer Sugarman from Activating Objects with Eric Paulos and developed at CodeLab.
Let's get started...
Step 1: What You'll Need
Materials: One Glove, Solder (and some skills, the Wave Shield is a marathon soldering session), Conductive Thread, Electrical Tape, Anti-Static Sheeting, Regular Sewing Thread and a Needle (and a thimble for you sensitive types), Aluminum or Copper Foil Tape, Electrical Wire ( there are two kinds used here: Solid and Stranded. You'll see why later), Velcro and Velcro Straps, Hot Glue Sticks.
