Introduction: Rotary Phone Puzzle for My Breakout Game

Picture of Rotary Phone Puzzle for My Breakout Game

A couple of weeks ago i bought a old rotarie telephone on the internet. Finally i had some free time to make a new puzzle part voor my breakout game. My idea is to use the telephone as a input device, a player have to try to fine the right phonenumber.

because i am not so good in programming i first lookt on the web for some samplescodes en lucky enough i found a youtube video from a guy here in the netherlands. I send him an e-mail with a request if it whas possible that he send me his arduino code of his project. Lucky enough i received a email back with the arduino code en schematics.

my rotary model have 3 wires : blue , yellow and red

I am in the middle of making this. I will probably mount an Adafruit Music Maker on top of it, to add sounds to the speaker, or resemble a bell ringing over an external speaker.

Thank you! The .ino works great. Had to try a bit which wire should be connected where. I also have 3 colours from the dial: red, yellow, blue. I connected yellow to GND and red to the 470 Ohm resistor. So I thought to add a photo of the wiring.

(In the end, I will use an original Arduino. This Chinese copy cannot deal with the power the Music Maker needs.)
