Programming Our Action Figure

To begin programming our action figure we will need to do the following steps before we can upload the code and get our action figure talking:

  1. Install the necessary Arduino libraries.
  2. Format and load audio files on SD card.
  3. Compile and upload to Arduino.

At the Adafruit website there is a great tutorial on how to download the WaveHC libraries and install them into our Arduino IDE. There is also a great explanation on how to format the SD card correctly and load our audio files. I have compiled a number of Max Trollbot quotes that can be loaded onto our SD card. The zip file that contains these files can be download here.  Once these libraries are installed and the SD card is loaded with audio files. you can now compile and upload the code to your Arduino.
