One thought on “Danica’s final project proposal and HW 11”

  1. Hi Danica, nice job on the homework! 👍

    For your final project, do you intend to make each acrylic module a different touch sensor? If so, you might consider this capacitive touch sensor board: https://www.adafruit.com/product/1982

    What color LEDs do you want to use, and can you make a more detailed BOM with links to parts you intend to use?

    To play recorded audio, you will need speakers (such as https://www.adafruit.com/product/1669) and an additional board to hold/play the audio file(s): https://www.adafruit.com/product/2217 Adjusting the playback speed is not supported.
