Dr Dice!

A noisy knitted dice made in Noise bridge, with just a few Dr Who references.

What ?

This project is the result of a stupid collaboration, during a stupid hackathon in a stupid hackerspace: noisebridge

It's about a knitted dice with some stupid electronics inside, if you throw it, a sound is played when it stops on a face. Those faces have different pictures related to the famous Dr. Who, and their associated sounds:

  • Dalek
  • TARDIS
  • Sonic Screwdriver
  • Random
  • Cyberman
  • Dr Who

How?

Technically, here is what we used:

Drivers

  • Accelerometer: we used a modified version of the LSM303 driver from pololu, it's in this repo.
  • Sound Board: we used the Adafruit driver from github, but it's embedded in this repo to be sure that it works even if they modify it.

Improvment ideas

During THSF#8, https://www.thsf.net/, we will try to adapt this project on other components in order to miniaturize the electronics. Maybe we'll use the Teensy Audio Shield instead of the Mini Audio FX Board ;)
