We wanted to something that has never been done before. So we decided to teach a dog how to play music.

What it does

Using a rewards based system, it rewards a dog who pushes the touch pads, giving him a treat. Each touch pad coordinates with a sound, which, when played together, play the sound of victory.

How We built it

We created three touch pads, which each send signals back to a micro controller. The micro controller parses through the data, detecting whether a touch pad has been touched. If it has, it sends a signal back to our python program, which then plays a sound which coordinates with that specific button. If the dog plays the buttons in order, a servo motor opens, releasing treats.

Challenges We ran into

Completing a hardware project online is very challenging. Good explaining skills are needed, and frustration has to be diminished. There were some annoying problems that occurred with APIs
