Mental Illness is a serious issue around the world and to be able to track it is important
What it does
Can try to distinguish between laughter and crying
How I built it
Using an arduino that detect certain peaks in speech to try and understand crying and laughter
Challenges I ran into
Arduino is not super capable of detecting those types of frequencies and just can detect sound volume
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
My first hardware hack!!
What I learned
Hardware can be frustrating but fun!
What's next for Sound Detection/Pattern Recognition with an Arduino
Storing information of laughter and crying and be able to send a joke or a quote when you are lacking laughter or cry too much.
