I would like to make a series of light-box-buttons in my house that:
Have a translucent front, where I can stick or replace decals
When you press and hold the box, it will:
- Switch on a set of LEDs that will light the box up.
- Play a sound file (less than 2 seconds) through a speaker within the box
When the box is released, the lights switch off.
Example of the buttons:
Example of the potential audio component
(8M Recordable Sound Play Module MP3 WAV Music Voice Player with Speakers)
I think that what I need to do is wire the LEDs to the play button and also make it so that the LEDs are switched off when the play button is released. I suppose a different play button might be required.
I also need to make it easy to that the push and release of the button is controlled by the front of the box, regardless of where it’s pushed (by a toddler).
Not really sure where to start with this. But happy to try.
Any advice would be very well received.
