My work colleagues were ribbing me over my recent robot addiction, and circulated a link to this video on YouTube of Mitchell and Webb’s Cheesoid sketch.
I happened to have an Arduino Mega and a recently purchased WaveShield in my laptop bag.
So that lunchtime I mocked up a cardboard box with the Arduino + WaveShield with a couple of buttons.
Picture to come soon.
The first version, I had no resistors in my bag, so couldn’t ground the digital inputs. This actually ended up with some pretty funny results around the office, as when ever someone approached Cheesoid, he would randomly start talking.
So as an extra feature I resampled the video clip and added more phrases that play at long random intervals.
