Foxonics is a simple board for storing both sound files and the computer programs that govern when to play the sound and what activates them. You could make a sculpture that threatens viewers when they look it in the eye or hack a teddy bear so that it says, “You’re my friend” when your nephew hugs it.
- $60 gets you enough to make one project with sound: a development board, a speaker, a battery pack and a project board (the thing that goes into your creation and runs the speaker)
- $65 adds the interface board: in other words, buttons that allow you to play different sounds
- $90 gets you an Arduino shield, which is still getting developed, and allows your Arduino to interface with the system.
All Foxonics systems will come with a code editor that’s preloaded with a bunch of basic programs for likely applications of the system. Developed by a veteran of the toy industry, William Sakran, this is a system designed from the start to make it easier to add fun to our creations.
Have you always wanted to set a demonic voice to threaten your teenager’s life and limb every time he sneaks into your secret ice cream supply? Get yourself a Foxonics system and that dream can be a reality.
