Overview

The Collective Cheer

The collective cheering ritual started in Wuhan, China, in January and spread across the globe in the virus's wake. Here, it is sometimes accompanied by the song "New York, New York."

Sometimes you can't be around at exactly the right time every day to participate in the collective cheer for healthcare workers. This device will remember for you and participate on your behalf, even if you can't. Sometimes we can all use a helping hand. 

This project creates an automatic cheering device that will play an MP3 of a crowd cheering every day starting at 7 PM.

We've designed this project around the Feather system of boards, which makes the components modular and easy to put together and expand upon. It can be easily modified to play any MP3 of your choice, and to go off at any time of your choice.
