Story Box

A devise which uses a jelly bean button to record and play messages  

Designer:  Ruvani Nagage 

Abstract

The Story Box is designed to help physically and mentally disabled individuals, who are not able to handle or read a story book, get an equal satisfaction out of listening to stories being told verbally. This device consists of a jellybean button, power switch, play/record switch, and reset button. The total recording time for the box is three minutes. These three minutes are given by the two ISD chips (25.120) that were used. This time period was divided into 6 segments, all 30 seconds each. These segments are controlled by the Basic Stamp. The jelly bean button activates the segments, one after the other. An amplifier is connected to the speakers used to increase the volume of the contents being played.
