  • I recently built a success box (you can find it at http://blog.tangrs.id.au/2014/07/the-success-box/) but using an RPi for such a simple task seems overkill. The success box plays some victory music (I chose Final Fantasy fanfare music) when you press the big red button. In fact, we use it at work to boost morale after a successful deploy! There's a video demonstrating its use at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbssA7Hg0GY :)

    I'm looking to improve the design, make it portable by chucking a lithium-ion battery on, reduce power consumption and save the RPi for something that requires a bit more power than just playing music on a button press. Maybe one day, I'll be able to make it cheap enough to produce and sell - who knows?

    I think a Lilypad would be the perfect microcontroller to replace the overkill RPi for this task :)

No public wish lists :(
