In today’s class we were able to finish the speaker and add buttons to increase sound and pause and change the song. This is the final iteration of the speaker that we will create for class. We will now create another speaker so that both Matt and I will have our own. It has been a long and interesting process, but one that was very rewarding and taught us both a lot.
Today in class we were able to finish the display speaker for the classroom. The speaker that will stay in the classroom has an open back so everyone can see inside of it and it works well. Our next step will be adding plastic buttons that will be able to skip songs and charge the volume manually from the speaker itself. Attached is a you tube video that Matt and I will use to help guide us along through the process. Mr. D also asked us to attach our inskape file of our most current speaker so it is also in this post as well.
Today in class I spent class studying how to create a toggle switch for the speaker. As we are transitioning to a Bluetooth version of the speaker we need to create a switch that will turn it off and off. The toggle switch seems to be the doable. Once Matt gets ba
Today in class we presented our design and got some very good feedback. We finished our speaker in the previous class and today we were able to share out to the rest of the class. We learned that we should put covers over the speakers to help protect it from outside sources. We will redesign the cover and also try to make other adjustments to improve the sound quality of the speaker. Our next steps will be to try and make the speaker wireless and to also improve the sound from the speaker.
Today in class I found my project for the second semester. On the left the image is of a Bluetooth circuit board meant to connect to a speaker. My job for the semester will be to build the speaker to go along with the circuit board. I am working with Matt to build it as we both have similar interest so it should be fun.
