Make your own Android Morse Code transmitter – hack away

• 07/03/2011


If you have a little spare time and some LEDs kicking around, you may want to geek out a little bit this week or weekend and build yourself an interactive, morse code lightable transmitter for your computer. ‘Why wouldn’t a guy’ you’d likely say right? Right!

Here’s the deal, you’ll need to grab one of DYZplastics wicked little Android figures to start and then the following list of supplies;

1 x Android Figure from DYZPLASTIC
1 x ATtiny44A from Mouser or Digikey
1 x 14 pin DIL socket
1 x Micro Servo SG90 (plastic) or MG90S (metal)
1 x Microphone e.g. CMC-5042PF-AC from Digikey
1 x Piezo (passive, not the buzzer kind)
2 x blue 5mm flat top wide angle LED from ebay
1 x red super bright 5mm LED
1 x green super bright 5mm LED
1 x yellow super bright 5mm LED
1 x NPN Transistor e.g. 2N3904
3 x 100nF ceramic capacitor
2 x 100K resistor
2 x 10K resistor
2 x 2K2 resistor (or other values depending on your blue LEDs)
3 x 150 resistor
1 x +5V power supply (e.g. USB charger)

It’s ok, we know how much you love to build those Star Wars models back in the day, this is just like that, but better!
