Shopper electronics geared toward small children have a tendency to be slightly janky and cheap-looking, and so they incessantly must be to live to tell the tale the extraordinary stress-testing standard use on this state of affairs. You must purchase a better high quality merchandise supposed for standard use, however this carries the danger of burning a hollow within the wallet of the fogeys. To string the needle in this predicament for a kid’s audiobook participant, [Turi] constructed the Grimmboy for a relative of his.
Taking its identify from the Brothers Grimm, the participant is ready of taking part in various youngsters’s tales and fables in a couple of languages, with each and every bodily represented through a small cassette tape likeness with an RFID tag hidden in each and every one. A tape can also be decided on and positioned within the participant, and the Arduino on the heart of it’ll acknowledge the tag and play the corresponding MP3 document saved in the neighborhood on an SD card. There are easy controls and the entire circuitry to toughen its lithium battery as smartly. All the supply code that [Turi] used to construct that is to be had on the venture’s GitHub web page.
This was once additionally featured on the Arudino weblog as smartly, and we in truth featured a an identical venture some time in the past with a rather other spin. Each are in keeping with concepts from Tonuino, an open supply venture geared toward turning Arduinos into MP3 avid gamers. Should you’re browsing to construct one thing with a couple of extra options, although, check out this tradition construct in keeping with the RP2040 microcontroller as a substitute.
