Shopper electronics aimed toward babies have a tendency to be rather janky and cheap-looking, and so they regularly need to be to live to tell the tale the extraordinary stress-testing commonplace use on this scenario. It’s good to purchase a better high quality merchandise meant for traditional use, however this carries the chance 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 title from the Brothers Grimm, the participant is in a position of enjoying various kids’s tales and fables in a couple of languages, with each and every bodily represented via 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 is going to acknowledge the tag and play the corresponding MP3 document saved in the neighborhood on an SD card. There are easy controls and all of the circuitry to improve its lithium battery as smartly. All the supply code that [Turi] used to construct that is to be had on the undertaking’s GitHub web page.
This was once additionally featured on the Arudino weblog as smartly, and we in truth featured a equivalent undertaking some time in the past with a somewhat other spin. Each are in response to concepts from Tonuino, an open supply undertaking aimed toward turning Arduinos into MP3 gamers. For those who’re browsing to construct one thing with a couple of extra options, although, check out this tradition construct in response to the RP2040 microcontroller as an alternative.
