The Dogs of Late Night Arduino Installation

The Dogs of Late Night Arduino Installation

I started out building a simple display case for some collectibles and then decided I should do something more with it. Think Billy Big Mouth Bass except much more inappropriate.

If you have ever watched Late Night with Conan O’Brien or have heard of Triumph The Insult Comic Dog you may be able to make some sense of this. This installation searches, reads and archives tweets containing Triumph’s famous catch phrase. There is a motion detection mode as well, where Triumph speaks using VOs from the show.

Under the hood some of the hardware used includes 2 Arduino Megas, WiFly Shield, WAV shield, EMic 2 TTS module, IN-18 Nixie tubes, PIR motion sensor, 4 servos, T Amp, 2 2″ Aluminum/Mg Full Range Speaker Drivers, thermal printer, Ikea Dioder, and a PowerSquid Calamari Edition.

This is a build log of the project.
