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
