1. Why this project
Lunii is a commercial story teller little box for kids : they listen to audio stories and they can change the path of some of them by choosing elements and characters. There is a tiny screen used only to display images during the choices.
Kids are fond about this box! As parent, your best friend during travels :D
Well, here comes the goal of this project. The story box is quite good, especially the mechanical part: the touch sensation is very soft and the size nearly perfect (a thiner box is better). You can buy and add more sories through a software called LuniiStore connected to the USB port of the box.
The dark side of the commercial box is the fragile electronics parts:
- Problems come often from the buggy firmware
- the USB port and the LCD screen defective electrical connections
- the battery fastener (and 700mAh only, not working after 3 years)
Having an electronics product that does not work is a drama for kids. That's why I decided to create my own version of a story teller box.
/!\ To complete & translate in english /!\
A PC and Android app is under development. The visual will be completely reviewed so that there won't be any confusion with Lunii, the commercial version.
The firmware will be very easy to port to any hardware platform.
For the moment, the firmware is just starting using Atmel ASF4 library.
5. Mechanical parts
The form factor will be completely different: the goal will be to provide a MINI story teller box.
/!\ Work in progress /!\
The goal here will be to provide 3D mechanical parts to print by yourself to you can easily build and repair your box at home.
