Pyt

Motivation

I have a colleague with a “Pyt Button”. “Pyt” is a silly danish word, that is hard to translate, it kind of means “don’t worry about it”. We bought another button and messed it up with inserting our own sounds to it, what a great prank :D

Prototype

The prototype is showing it can work. It is a test of

  1. Using an arduino and a dfplayer mini board to play MP3
  2. Using the speaker on the ‘Pyt’ Button
  3. Using relays to turn of the system completely, so it is not using any power during standby

Making the ‘Pyt’ Button Prank

The original button is quite simple and easy to dismount. Just removing the original chip and using the wires for the speakers

Then doing some testing
