Musical Timer for Games

by JackANDJude

Published on November 6, 2014

Play music by flipping over a can.  The music gets faster and faster until you run out of time, so get busy!

Uses a tilt module and an Arduino bit.

How To Make It

1

Vote for JackANDJude's "Tilt Trigger" http://littlebits.cc/bitlab/bits/tilt-trigger .  To make a simple, non trigger, tilt switch, view the project called "Tilt Switch from A Button!"

2

Assemble this circuit: power + Proto Module (TILT) + (A0) Arduino (d9) + wire + speaker Mounting boards don't fit inside my small coffee can, so I used a Brick Adapter to keep the power + Proto + Arduino assembled.

3

Upload the Musical Timer.ino sketch to your Arduino. Remember to include the pitches.h file in the same folder as the .ino file.

4

Decorate a plastic cylinder that has a lid. I used a small plastic coffee can.

5

Stick the tilt trigger module on the lid. Turn on the circuit. Close the lid.
