Chicken Wing Clock(This name inspired by Anna)



Good morning friends,

Are you late for today?

Are you still upset about not getting up on time every morning?

Are you still thinking about why you feel the alarm clock is not ringing every morning?

Congratulations, “your best partner ”—— the chicken wing clock is coming to you!


This is a clock which is named chicken wing clock. This is not an ordinary alarm clock. When the alarm is turned on, it can continually poke with the tip of the chicken wings to make you wake up. The alarm clock is turned off while the chicken wings are stopped.


It is funny but it is useful.


Now, let we see how to create this ” funny chicken wing “.



  • a Wood board (22* 34* 0.7 inches)
  • Fish wire (40inchs)
  • Hot glues
  • Wood glues
  • Insulation tape
  • an MG995R
  • an Arduino board
  • a DS1307 Real Time Clock (RTC): I2C board
  • An LCD screen
  • two pushbuttons
  • registers (220 Ω)
  • a buzzer
  • Coin cell battery
  • an electret Microphone Amplifier – MAX9812
  • a USB wire
  • wires
  • soldering machine
  • CNC
  • Sandpapers (220)


The first step:

The second step:

Making the chicken wing and clock box



(8inchs* 5.5inchs*0.2inchs)






The third step:

Testing code

First idea:

Pet door

This is a pet door, if you want to open it, you need to touch this door. When the door feels very comfortable, it will open.

Second idea:

“morning” alarm clock

Every morning your alarm clock is ringing but you turn off the alarm clock in your sleepy sleep, causing you to be late for work. So you need an alarm clock that can wake you up. You can hear the sound, and you can feel someone waking up you.

Third idea:

Cheers baby pen

When you finish your work project, you need to celebrate in time. You can touch anything with a pen, and the pen will say: “cheers baby”

Yellow Patrick Star



This is a Patrick star. It is lively and cheerful and likes to talk to children. What it is best at is to bring light to the dark girl in the dark. This way the girl will no longer be afraid of the night or walk alone on the night.


This idea comes from my childhood. I have seen too many movies when I was young. I always feel that there are bad things in a dark corner at night. So I will be very scared. Especially when I walked alone on the night, I sometimes stopped to relax.

When I was young, my favorite cartoon characters were Patrick Star and Minions. Because I think Patrick Star’s fat and soft will give me a sense of security. Minions color is my favorite color.So I combined them and designed my Yellow Patrick Star.


This is the process of making my toys. I am thinking about the circuit arrangement after making the toy. In the process of making toys, I used a sewing machine.I am not very good at using sewing machines. Because I am afraid of needles. But in the end I still finished with the machine. This is a big challenge and a big step forward for me.

Third week homework

This week, i really enjoy the homework. I tried several ways to write code to write the same effect. Although,  it isn’t work all the time. So interesting~

home 3:

int buttonpin =9;
int buttonpin1 =10;
int ledpin =12;
int buttonState = 0;
int buttonState2 = 0;

void setup() {
pinMode(ledpin, OUTPUT);

void loop() {
buttonState = digitalRead(buttonpin);
buttonState2 = digitalRead(buttonpin1);
if (buttonState == LOW){
}else if(buttonState2 == LOW){

Megaphone Toy Teardown

What is it?

This is a megaphone toy. In the back of toy, there is a toggle switch. It can be played a sound that seem like the sound of fire engines when you push the toggle up. If you turn the toggle down, this sound will be closed.

How I broke it apart:


(Open the battery cover)

Step 1:

I used the floral screwdriver to turn on the screw.

Then remove the battery cover.

Finally, I find two battery to power.


(Open the megaphone toy)

Step 2:

I used the floral screwdriver to turn on the six screws. This six screws is distributed in the front, middle, back, down in order to fasten down shall of model.

When I turn on the middle of screw, there is a gasket to reduce worn and torn.







Step 5:

A buzzer or beeper is an audio signaling device, which may be mechanical, electromechanically, or piezoelectric (piezo for short). In this megaphone, the buzzer is embedded in the model and secured with a plastic strap.


(Toggle Switch)

Step 6:

This is a toggle switch. When you push the toggle up, the linear spring will touch the copper line to form a closed circuit.



(Voice Record)

Step 7:

The voice module is the central processor for the entire toy.It is used to store audio and drive sound.There are two resistors on the back of the board. Resistance is the purpose of the protection circuit will not be an excessive current in the power circuit board burned moment.


(Copper Sheet)

Step 8:

The current inside the battery is led out through the copper sheet.



Tools Used: Screw drivers

Select two design elements that interest you and describe why you think the designer(s) made it that way.

  • The position of the handle is mounted on the battery because the battery is heavy. The position of the battery in the handle allows the weight of the megaphone to go down.This is convenient for the user to put in his hand.
  • The switch is fixed at the position on both sides of the middle because the user will not accidentally touch the switch when using it.






Hi! My name is YUE LENG.


Hi~ My name is YUE LENG. I come from north of China. I like use to Arduino and processing. My favorite artist is Daito Manade. I am exciting that i will learn Arduino to make a product such like a art project or VJ and so on. But my math was not very well. I hope that I can use the calculator in the class.
