MorseEbookReader is launched

Hello,

I like variations (especially in music) and some do not like Twitter. So I thought about how to mix the two passions. Et voilá: Here it is the MorseEbookTweeter. He does what he is supposed to do: Read eBooks (ASCII-Text) and translates them to Morsecode. I used the Arduino, an Ethernet- and LCD-shield.

Have a look: http://hajos-kontrapunkte.blogspot.com/2011/02/enough-counting-i-want-to-read.html

Hahaha! Awesome! You need to be good at Morse code, and German to understand that message. I happen to be good at neither. So you used the sd card on your ethernet shield to store a book and play it with Morse code, right?

So you are the rich guy with an ethernet shield right?(I like to portray myself as poor. I don't have anything fancy or fat pay check :(). What baffles me is the height of the RJ45 socket on the ethernet shield. I have only read about it, 15.11mm tall. Will that make your LCD shield wobble on top of it? What part of Phi-1 shield prevented it from being used on the ethernet shield? The need for pin 4 on LCD? You can cut the male pin that goes to pin 4 off and reroute that pin to a different location from the top right female pin header. Will that help? You could lose that breadboard and buzzer if you use the phi-1 shield :)

Yes, I like Morse code and I hear up to 150 chars/min. But to be true, this is only a project: I do not hear books in morse code although others do to increase the speed. I use it only for ham-communication.

Thats a real problem. Have a look at my Tower of Babylon. I used extra spacers. Otherwise it makes no fun.

It came too late :roll_eyes:, the other shield was faster.

But I will give it later on a try. :offtopic: And one last remark: Why use Morse code? It is still a very efficient way to talk to other people all over the world with a minimum of power and it is faster than sms :rofl:.

Oh yeah! In order to reach the gods with your tower, you need about 450 more posts. :grin:

The “GODS” demand to know the name of the level immediately below the LCD shield!!! XD :wink:
(seriously, what is it? :roll_eyes:)

Darn it! Postal services. Was the kit packed well? :cold_sweat:

It is a break-out board and it was really cheap. I dont keep my projects. As soon as they function, they will be torn down and another configuration takes place. I hop the “GODS” are satisfied.

Can't wait to see what you do next. Ethernet, LCD, buzzers, buttons... :roll_eyes:
