Networked Squeeze Toy

January 6th, 2016 — Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

This little hedgehog, or "Julian" as I call him, is a stuffed dog toy that chatters when you squeeze him.

In this "Internet of Things" project, I've hooked up his squeeze-to-speak circuitry to a Raspberry Pi 3 running a Flask web server. Using the web interface anyone on the Internet can virtually squeeze him and he'll chatter in my house.

Full documentation will be posted to my github account when I've finished preparing it.
