Dancing/singing robot

Hi guys, I'm thinking of building a dancing/singing robot for a close friend of mine. I want it to be similar to one of those electronic santa toys that dance and sing carols when you turn them on. Except, I would change the body and make it look like the singer of my friend's favourite band, and make it sing her favourite songs. How would I go about starting this project? Any suggestions? Thanks

Modifying a Singing Greeting Card

A while ago my wife got one of those singing Hallmark greeting cards. (This particular one played the Law and Order theme song) Well after a while it no longer played the song. I opened it up and found that there is a circuit board inside with a 3v button cell battery attached to it. I removed the board and the speaker and the battery and I'm pretty sure that I could attach wires to the two contact points and connect them to batteries that would complete the circuit and allow the theme song to play again. What I want to know is if I need to take any special consideration when putting in a new battery(s). I was going to try to just put two AA batteries in series (1.5v +1.5v =3v, right?) but I don't actually know anything about electronics and so I wanted to ask here if there were any resistors needed or if there were any differences between the button cell and the AA batteries that would require me to do something different.While we're on the topic of these cards I just thought of a neat project. Design some sort of holder for the circuit boards that would allow them to act as sort of an interchangeable cartridge. Basically detach the speaker wires and battery contacts from various boards out of various cards and design some sort of holder with contacts for the speaker and power source at the appropriate points and be able to change out the different boards. Not really practical but sounds like fun.I just thought of yet another question!Would there be anyway to hook the board up to some sort of audio cable (in place of the speaker maybe) so that I could plug these into a computer and record the song off of the board in a digital format. (Again not very practical but sounds like fun.)Anyway, this is my first post here and I'm sorry if it's a bit jumbled but I don't have a very organized mind and sometimes it's hard to put my ideas down in a succinct manner. I tend to just ramble on incessantly in a train of thought sort of manner until I think that I've said what I think I wanted to say. In closing, I like this site and plan to be around for a while and learn as much as I can. If somebody would like to help me with these ideas/projects I would be happy to provide pictures of the circuit board and pieces that I have if it's necessary.Thanks.~JoshI'm using two AA batteries. I have a wire between the positive side of B1 and the negative side of B2 and wires coming off the open ends. I tried connecting the batteries from the spot where the negative side of the button cell was to the silver rectangle thinking that that would complete the circuit and make music. That didn't work. Then I noticed that the positive connection for the circuit was actually where the clip that secured the battery was before I removed it and that the positive and negative sides of the battery were going through a capacitor before touching the final contact. so I tried placing the positive wire up on the positive contact and then placing a wire from the positive contact to the final contact but that also didn't work. I don't have any solder and have been using electrical tape to secure the wires. The wires are a fairly thin (I don't know the gauge) stranded copper. I'm not sure if the wires aren't making good contact or if I'm just doing something wrong.

How to hack a Big Mouth Billy Bass with arduino?

I was wondering how to hack a Big Mouth Billy Bass so that he sings a different song than the ones he comes with. And I want him to have different movements so that he moves to the beat. More specifically, I want him to sing these songs and move like this: I know how to solder, and I have worked with singing fish before. I know how to switch circuit boards, but I would like to try Arduino.

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

Has anyone else seen Joss Whedon's newest creation, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog? Joss has a letter on the site explaining how and why it was created, but the gist of it is that Whedon was bored during the writer's strike, so he got some siblings and buddies together to create Dr. Horrible for the Internet. It stars Neil Patrick Harris as the horrible doctor (The Super Villain protaganist), Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer (The Super Hero antagonist), and Felicia Day as Penny (The Love Interest). The Story is about Dr. Horrible's attempt to join The Evil League of Evil and win the heart of Penny while Captain Hammer constantly foils his plans. His story is told through his video blog. It's an amazing movie, and the music (yes, it's a musical, and yes, Nathan can sing!) is great. I highly recommend you check it out!

Which program, application, or site is the best site for music making and mixes (I know it's opinion based)?

I've recently taken an interest in producing my own music to supplement my YouTube account. I'm very interested in creating techno, club, jpop mixes, hardstyle, and light dub step. I want to make music I can shuffle to. I also want to branch out in to other genres of synthetic music, including classical-inspired music. I want to be able to rip, warp, distort, and modify music clips. I'd like to be able to separate aspects of a song (vocal from instrumental) but I don't think free programs offer that feature. I thought I would use the previous paragraph to get past the usual "what are you using it for?" question.

Newbie... How do I create the singing pumpkin as a singing Christmas Ornament for my holiday bash?

Every year I have a huge Christmas party at my place, and every year I do something more over the top. I'm just now getting into lighting and things and have no background experience in any of this. For instance, you say relay switch... I say WHA? I of course can "look it up", and I've been known to dabble in circuitry. However, I wanted this year to try to re-create the singing halloween pumpkins (that I saw in a video), or the singing Haunted mansion ghosts, into singing animated ornaments (the big kind). I know this can be done, its just a matter of understanding the steps involved. For instance, I know I will probably need a projector of sorts and huge ornaments and some sort of animation. I mostly have mac products so if the programs are for windows they won't work for me. Also, the easiest will probably be the best since I'm new. I also checked out the hologram illusion technique and the glass projection as ideas for doing this or possibly showing a floating movie or christmas short. Thanks for any and all highly detailed information. I would love to get into these things as I'm a Christmas nut and well, most of the Christmas stuff out there just sucks for creativity, but Halloween decor is insanely cool.  I want Disney-like animations and projections. Something special that WOWS. Thanks again!

audio amplifier for singing arc speaker, 110v design

Okay, I'm planning on starting on a plasma speaker, I know somewhat how I want to build it. My neighbor has one of the old school neon sign transformers for sale, he wants next to nothing for it. So I intend to use that to simplify finding materials. I am incapable of designing a circuit, so I am asking for help. What I need is for somethng to control the 110v for the transformer based on the audio input. My alternate idea was to use two NSTs and have them become a stereo channel unit. I do prefer that idea myself. I simply have no idea how to control the sound from the arc without taking the arc out. Honestly, my electronics knowledge in circuit design made me think a really big relay would work. Until I realized that was stupid. Anyways, my preferred idea is using a project box to contain a circuit, fused around critical areas to prevent the music device being blown up on accident or anything else bad happening. A stereo plug, with one transformer being the left, the other the right. I also want to try to drive either the low voltage or the 110v computer cooling fan type things so that there is an airflow through the arc.  Please help me-I can't design circuits for the life of me, and I would rather this work out. Thanks!

best mosfet config for a powerful flyback driver? would a capacitor across the flyback windings improve preformance?

Well i have an instructable on my singing arc project, i tried the simple 555 driving a power mosfet, but they kept burning out. even the IRF840!!! rated for 500V!!! what am i doing wrong? i tryed using a neon lamp with a series resistor of 4.6K ohms (i think) but it didnt help at all, in fact, it wouldn't even light, yet i got a nasty shock and 2mm spark from the 555 timer, i was amazed that it survived, but not for long, anyways. so i moved on to try a fast diode across the primary, but backwards, to absorb the back-EMF. but it just cut away at the output significantly (from an 2 cm to less than 5mm). it got quite warm in the process too, for the few seconds it was on. i havent tried it yet, but would a diode in series with the power supply, mosfet, flyback, and ground work better? and give a place for the electricity to go? what would a capacitor across the primary do? i heard people doing this and increasing the output, but will it impair an audio signal?

My Biggest... and Only fear. Keeping me safe? or Holding me back?

I want desperately to be able to sing well in front of people, but I just can't. right now I think I am .... well..... almost OK at singing. I think I have some potential but I'm terrified to sing in front of people. I have played Bass guitar and lead guitar in front of 10 + thousand people on a couple of occasions and it was the biggest thrill of my life. I think the difference comes in because.... I know I am a great Bass player...... and a pretty awesome guitar player (not trying to brag, just kinda makes my point) but I have no idea if I'm even close to listenable (is that a word?) when I sing..... mostly because other then fall down drunk, I've never sung in front of people (The crowd was also fall down drunk, so no help there) I practice daily but only when there isn't a person for miles that could possibly hear me. I recored myself often and listen to it..... I can defiantly hear much improvement since I first started really trying to sing..... but I couldn't tell you if I went from god awful to please stop singing or if its decent to not bad. I've considered recording a song and posting to youtube..... figuring that maybe I could get some feed back without embarrassment...... but even that terrifies me. How can I get over this?..... even if just to find out if I suck or not?

how does this tea container work? Answered

My parents have had it for as long as i can remember, and then a bit more, its branded by Tetley, and as i recall, it is some sort of limited edition container, there is no date stamped on it anywhere, its made by Royal Winton. when you poen the lid, the container will play a tune, and its only when there is light visible by the bottom of the lid, if you set the lid on a flat surface or turn off the lights, it stops singing. which brings me to the question: how does it know its open, how does it make noise, and, most confusing, how has it managed to keep working even though its at least 20 years old? surely if it ran off of a battery it wouldve burnt out by now, right?

Merry Knexmas! From Hiyadudez! It's almost here, Christmas, one of the happiest times of the year. Lets start of by singing a song, made by Logic boy :-) Rudolph, the red-turreted knexsayer had a very shiny turret.  And if you ever saw it,  you would even say it was awsome.  All of the other knex guns  used to laugh and call it names.  They never let poor Rudolph  join in any knex wars.  Then one foggy Christmas Eve  Mepain came to say:  "Rudolph with your Turret so bright,  won't you be my primary tonight?"  Then all the knex guns loved him  as they shot out with glee,  Rudolph the red-turreted knexsayer,  you'll go down in history!     Well, that was completely random... but I bet you are singing it in your head right at this very moment though! Hehe :-) Anyway, I only made this because I was bored, cya!
