Slider Potentiometer

Use the potentiometer slider to create a "clicking" sound. This doesn't actually change any of the sounds, it’s just to mimic the prop on the TV show…though if you get into customizing the code, it could be used as a starting point for more sound sets.

DOES NOT ACTUALLY CHANGE SHAPE – THIS IS A PROP!

Push Button Trigger

Use the push button to play the "blaster" sound. The yellow LED will light up when the push button is pressed.

DOES NOT ACTUALLY SHOOT LASERS OR SPARKLES

Mechanical Key Switches

Use the key switches to play sounds, up to 9 different ones! The yellow LED will light up and flicker for the duration of the audio.

If building the Talking Computer: normally the keys play sound immediately when pressed. If you’d prefer the keys select sounds and the trigger plays the current selection, edit the code.py file and change buttons_play = True to False around line 38.
