For the longest time I have always wanted to build a device that would randomly play sounds of birds and crickets. The device would of course be located outside and would gather it’s power from solar power that would recharge the batteries.
During the day the device would randomly play the sounds of various bird calls and at night, triggered by a light sensor, would play random cricket sounds.
After doing a bit of research I found that you can purchase ISD Chips that can hold a good bit of sound data. Not sure though if these types of chips would be the best for this project.
What I am looking for is guidance or just pure imaginative thinking from others on how something like this could be accomplished.
- Solar powered with rechargeable battery
- Bank of various bird sounds
- Bank of various cricket sounds
- Randomizer that would calculate which sound to play at random intervals
- Light sensor to turn on/off cricket/bird sounds
The main reason for the randomizer for the sounds and timing is so that you can achieve a more natural sound instead of just a irritating loop.
Any help would be appreciated!
