Add Speech and Textual content with the Arduino E-Z COMMS Protect
While you develop a mission on the Arduino platform, you might wish to add a couple of strains of textual content, and/or make it converse a couple of “phrases of knowledge” to customers. Whereas both is actually doable, Patrick Thomas Mitchell’s E-Z COMMS Protect makes each duties very simple hardware-wise. It plugs in as an Uno protect, and supplies a 16-character x two-line LCD within the center, together with a stereo jack that may transmit speech to powered exterior audio system.
It needs to be famous, that “speech” right here doesn’t embrace everything of the English language (or every other language for that matter), however as an alternative has a financial institution of 256 phrases to select from. A multi-alphabet chip can be chosen, which as an alternative lists off letters in seven languages. Whereas the board does have a restricted vocabulary, saved phrases like “open,” “pull,” “warning,” and even varied numbers, ought to cowl many robotics and management eventualities.
What’s additionally attention-grabbing is that, along with permitting entry to the Arduino’s I/O pins, it features a financial institution of six floor, 5 5V, and three 3.3V pins to energy your mission. This might be extraordinarily useful, as past a couple of I/O, makers are sometimes left looking for extra energy factors when working with dev boards.
You’ll be able to take a look at E-Z COMMS Protect’s phrase and letter financial institution within the movies beneath, and again Mitchell’s marketing campaign for your self over on Kickstarter.
