• THE SOUND FLOWER

    Shout into the Microphone and observe the eruption of flowers bloom. Depending on how loud you can be, the volume of flowers will increase and the RGB LED will change colors.

    How It Works/Data flow:

    Huzzah Feather receives the information from the Microphone Amp breakout board
    The information is converted into simpler numbers(states) and pushed to Adafruit IO feed
    Processing is listening for data subscribed from Adafruit IO
    Processing takes the Adafruit IO data and produces the necessary outcome (i.e. sound level converted into varying levels of flower bloom)
    LED lights in mic reflect the level the user is in. When highest note is recorded for more than 10 seconds, a "finisher" rainbow wheel turns as the flowers continuously bloom.

    Tools:
    Adafruit Feather HUZZAH ESP8266
    Adafruit Microphone Amplifier Breakout board
    Adafruit NeoPixel RGB LED
    Processing P3
    ArduinoIDE
    Adafruit IO
    3D Printed Microphone Casing
    Prusa 3D Printer
    Mic Stand
  • Stumbling Blocks:
    Issues with Arduino IO throttling from too much information sent in too short a time span
    Issues with HUZZAH not connecting to the internet for unknown reasons
