DIY Sound Effects Suit Jacket: *Applause*

A young man named Kenneth Guglielmino is one step closer to living in a 90s sitcom. He hacked together a suit jacket that emits cliché audience reactions at the push of a button.


Kenneth packed an Arduino, an Adafruit Wave Shield and a small speaker into a suit jacket. I’m not sure what he used as a controller or if he made one from scratch, just that he can change samples and switch between sound banks using different buttons. The sound effects he installed include a booing sound, an awwww sound, an air horn and of course the ol’ canned laughter.

Great job, Kenneth. Now you just have to invent robot co-stars that embody various stereotypes and you’re all set!
