Electronic Singing Bird

The Arduino is a small yet powerful computer board that uses physical computing techniques with an Atmel microcontroller (processing development environment) and the C programming language. To illustrate the versatility of the Arduino in turning ordinary electronic circuits into cool smart devices, I will show how to make an interactive electronic singing bird in this chapter. The required parts are pictured in Figure 1-1.
