When Edvard Munch painted his most famous painting, The Scream, in 1893 he perfectly captured the existential angst of modern humanity. He did not, however, have access to a microcontroller board with built-in sound sensing connected to a servo motor and speaker, so he failed to make his masterpiece interactive.
Today, we’ll change all of that! By using the Crickit with Circuit Playground Express, and a bit of code in CircuitPython, we can make The Scream scream back at you when you scream at it!
In addition to the parts above, you’ll need:
- Two copies of the painting printed on a color printer
- Corrugated cardboard
- Chipboard (thin cardboard)
- Frame and mat with cardboard backing
- Scrap wood for standoffs
- Glue stick for paper
- High temp hot melt glue and glue gun, or wood glue and clamps
- Frame hanging hooks and hardware
- Hobby knife
- Straight edge
