Tinnitus pillow whit speakers, rfid reader, mp3 player, battery.
Books whit rfid tags.
Next week I want to make a prototype of a “story telling pillow”. I am planning to get the rfid reader to read witch book you want to listen to, and start playing a story from a mp3 player.
I have to find out how the “story pillow” should work. How is the mp3 suppose to work, should you downloading sounds from the Internet? Ore should everything be stored on the mp3 form the start? How should it start playing? How should it stop playing? Could I use a pressure sensor? How should you power the mp3 player- a cable? Is it possibility to take the player out?
Where do you buy the books and the story? Where should the rfid be placed? Etc.
I found a pillow that has tow integrated speakers, it’s called a tinnitus pillow and it plays relaxing sounds to help people whit tinnitus to sleep. The pillow is not recommended to children under 3 years old, but it dos not say why? So I spoke whit an audiogram to find out why. She told me that children are born whit fully develop hearing so the only thing she cold thing of being a problem is that small children could get strangled by the power cable.
