Last week, we ran into trouble concerning our audio connections. However, this week, we managed to solder and test everything, and were able to create a youtube video of our soundcard and headphones playing sound based on keyboard input. We hope to use the Edison to integrate this audio system into the clock, with the inputs as the clock’s bells which are outfitted with potentiometers affixed to buttons.   In addition, we worked on the external frame of the clock, attaching the pote ...
Now that we have pretty much disassembled the clock, we’re working on rewiring it so each system in the clock functions before reassembly. We had a few problems with publishing this blog due to some unexpected delays(and lack of communication due to traveling/sicknesses) but hope to be able to maintain a more consistent pace over the next few weeks.   Progress summary: Finished creation of button + potentiometer interface that will be affixed to the top of the clock Got I2C to work ...
  Summary of completed work thus far:   Confirmed that the USB sound adapter works. We used a computer running Ubuntu to emulate an Intel Edison running Yocto. We chose to use the default Yocto due to previous experience with Linux. We began to turn the bell at the top into a button/potentiometer system for changing volume and playback/skip on alarm functions) Took apart another clock to gain a gear box with the pins needed to control clock pins. We plan to attach a servo to the bl ...
