Introduction: Arduino Talking Robot
Relationships with a romantic partner can be the single greatest thing
in the world, as well as the single most frustrating. Because of that, many people have no problem venting out relationship issues to anyone who will listen — at least, that’s what I tend to do anyway. The funny thing is, when it comes to matters of the heart, people around you suddenly turn into love gurus who have no problem giving you their insight — no matter how bad it may be. When we want something to work out so bad, we'll try to receive any form of help necessary to make it work.
BUT , things dont go as planned , we have this : a talking doll that tells you how much it loves you when you touch it , and it glows in the dark :D .
I AM SO WANT TO GET A GF , and yes i lost my brain cells years ago .
watch the video as it goes in more details and maybe put a like an subscribe if you like it , and maybe encourage me with a comment.
Jokes aside , let's try have a look at the material needed:
* Arduino nano
* Sd card reader
* Small speaker
* Sd card
* Soldering iron and soldering wire
* Good copper wires
* 3D printer
* Hot glue gun and super glue
* Some PLA filament : glow in the dark for cool nigh time ;)
* 9v battery * 9v battery clip
Step 1: 3D Pinting the Parts
This is very easy all you need to do is 3d print the parts.
I will share my printer settings so this can help you and be a reference point .
I use cura 4.6 as my slicer.
Every printer is different , so make sure to try first a small piece to make sure every thing works fine , and use a good filament.
I only designed the box base , the doll model can be foundhere.
Step 2: Cleaning the Printes
Make sure your parts are clean .
Use hexo knife to clean all the parts and pliers to remove the supports.
Be gentle especially in the arms and legs because they are kinda fragile .
Step 3: Glue the Body
Now this is may not be needed if you want your model to come apart for packaging or something , but if you just want to put it as a decoration , use hot glue to fix the tail and the body parts , super glue woks great for that too.
Step 4: The Electronics
To be honest , the electronics are very simple , its just a matter for wiring some wires , i made an instructables project for that , click here.
the only difference is this time we added a sensorto detect the touch and play the music.
you can add an on of switch to the case , use a soldering iron the make th hole and super glue to fix it in place.
the code is simple and if you have any question let me know in the comments.
and maybe subscribe to the channel it helps a lot :) .
Step 5: Code
You can find the code and the music file from here , but i showed you in the videohow to convert any mp3 file to work with the sd card.
Arduino nano , uno , and pro mini will work fine with this code.
