Arduinos are showing up everywhere. Even in space. But what about the lowly tip jar?
Are Arduino projects giving the Wu-Tang Clan the proper respect they deserve?
Not even close!
That's what this is about.
Dolla dolla bill y'all.
Step 1: Materials
Can - My can used to hold beans. I ate those beans and kept the can.
Wave Shield - Adafruit
SD Card - For holding the sound files.
Audio Amplifier - The wave shield has a really low volume coming off of the shield. You need to amplify it.
Ultra Bright LED
300 ohm resistor
Spray Paint - I used a matte black
2" speaker - Jameco
Scrap upholstery fabric for the speaker cover
M3-10 Bolts with Nuts
Hot glue gun
Step 2: Print the Wu-Tang Can Lid
I ran lip test before printing out the full lid. I wanted to make sure that it would snap onto the lip of the can and stay on. First test print was a dismal failure (too small). Second print was successful. Huzzah!
The lid contains mounting for the LED and the photoresistor and snaps for the speaker. When I was putting attaching the speaker, one of the snaps broke off. Oh well. That's what hot glue is for.
Step 3: Assemble the Wave Shield
I use the Wave Shield a lot. It is a fickle shield. I've spent so much time troubleshooting it that I've come across and overcome a lot of the limitations. I think it's because of this that I keep using it. Adafruit has told me that they are redesigning it. I'm looking forward to this.
Here's an earlier write up (step 2) on getting the Wave Shield soldered and tested.
