The mischievous whistling habit!!! What decent act has it done?? Calling pets, teasing women and using it as a secret code to attack on the enemy; what else has the whistle done? Cheering for favorite teams, partying up hard in the college, singing the melodious tunes, where else has the whistle been used? Most importantly, what has the whistle done for the geek?? Here it is!! Control any gadget you want with just whistle.
Now there are ways like touch sensor, switches, keyboards, keypads, regulators etc. to operate various electronic gadgets; but a whistle is quite different compared to all these. The frequency at one whistles, intensity of whistle and it duration are usually different and hence it becomes very difficult to implement something which uses whistle as its controller.
Difficult to implement did we just say?? Certainly not when you see the end product, an open hardware which not only switches the gadgets ON or OFF but can also work out to vary the current mode.
Innovator of this project:Mathieu Stephan a.k.a Limpkin, an open hardware enthusiast hailing from Switzerland, has designed this project to display the digital signal processing capability of a Cortex M-4. In the blog post where he has posted about this board, which he calls “Whistled”, he details with hardware intricacies of PCB designing and the software algorithm. Much encouraged by the hard work, he has self-funded the project and it is on sale through Tindie.
This here, ladies and gentlemen, is a very much one man product which can handle many shows of fascination and science.
