Make a sound recorder? Answered

I bought a cheap answering machine, but it's too big for the container I want to put it in. What parts can I use from it? I just want it to record a sound and play it back when a button is pressed. Also, I salvaged a part from a touch lamp. How can I incorporate this for the power?

Can't use any of it. Just spend $12 on a ready made recording module.


Now if you want to use the touch sensor of the lap to give power to a 9V wall adapter then go for it. Just need to pull the touch module from the base of the lamp. Make a note of the wires connected to the power cord, wires going to the bulb and the wire connected to the metal body of the lamp.
