Maker and developer DevMiser is shaking things up with this awesome Raspberry Pi-powered Magic 8 Ball. This clever project adds a twist to the classic toy by not only telling you your fortune but also playing it through a speaker.
It doesn’t take much computing power to operate this Magic 8 Ball, making the Raspberry Pi Zero an ideal candidate. The interface is also incredibly user-friendly. The Magic 8 Ball is mounted on top of a stand ,so instead of shaking the ball, users press a button on the top and wait for the ball to answer your question out loud with the help of a simple Python script.
We always insist the best Raspberry Pi projects are the ones you can make at home. DevMiser was awesome enough to share all of the components you need to create a working Magic 8 Ball of your own. Inside, you’ll find a Pi Zero, an I2S amplifier board, a speaker, and an LED arcade button.
