Ralph's Foginator 2000


  It all works nicely, as of this afternoon.  I simplified the audio because I did not get my Raspberry Pi audio cable ready.  With as many Raspberry Pi B+ and newer that have been sold, I wonder why someone does not build audio cables.  Ideally, it would be a short cable with the weird Raspberry Pi trrs connector on one end and a female 3.5 stereo audio jack on the other end.  Then, you could plug cheap computer speakers in.  I mount Raspberry Pis on the back of LCD monitors.  These pften have a 3.5mm stereo jack built in.  Oh, well.


So, I used the network to play the audio.  When the neopixel display lights up, a command is sent through ssh to a desktop Linux machine to play the sound file Charles Gantt calls correct.mp3  I like the effect of it coming from the next room.  This project has been fun and I look forward to starting a new one  I'd like to build a movement tracker using the accelerometer, magnetometer, and gyroscope in the Sense Hat.  I have played with those a bit and I see I need to do some research on smoothing that data to make it useful.  Everyone have a happy All Saints Day(Nov 1).
