To build a device that will remind people not to flush anything but toilet paper once they have finished their business.

The UK is being hit with the soft wet wipe style tissues that are advertised as flushable and other products such as cotton buds that are entering the sewage styles and causing blockages and equipment failures. In the fight to raise awareness of these issues I want to build the Flush-A-Vader.



Arduino Uno

Ardunio adafruit wave shield


Motion sensor (I have two to try)


Proposed Design:

Proposed Method:

Step 1: Solder the Wave shield together

Step 2: Record message and import onto shield

Step 3: Get speaker wired up and working

Step 5: Work out how to use a motion sensor

Step 6: Link all together and house in a decorated cardboard tissue box


Wish me luck! :-)
