Friday Night Robotics – BubbleBoy’s “Melodies”

This FNR I added a speaker to BubbleBoy. I wanted to see how much better it would be to make a postulation as to how BubbleBoy is “feeling”, since it has “emotions”. Those words are used in quotes because they are represented in the code by single-layer perceptrons (without being trained), which really doesn’t do justice to the amount of processing needed to accomplish such tasks. This is just a trial to see if audible feedback will enhance the user’s experience of playing with BubbleBoy.

Here is a video of an explanation of what the user can see and hear:

Oh, and I streamed while making this.

Soooo, I challenge all of you who are reading this to add a speaker/sound to one of your projects. It doesn’t have to be fancy! Leave a comment if you do accomplish this challenge, I would like to see it :)

    In this wonderful style of things you’ll receive an A just for effort. Exactly where you truly confused us was in your facts. You know, they say, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be a lot more accurate here. Having said that, let me reveal to you just what exactly did deliver the outcomes. The writing can be pretty persuasive and that is possibly the reason why I’m taking the effort to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, although I can easily notice the jumps in logic you make, I’m definitely not convinced of just how you appear to connect your concepts that produce the actual conclusion. For proper now I will subscribe to your position however wish within the near future you actually connect your dots significantly better.
